Thanks for participating in our director election!

We are thrilled that we had record-breaking participation this year in our director election!

Because we are owned by those we serve, our customers (whom we call members) elect other members to serve on the board of directors. Democratic member control is one of the seven cooperative principles that guide us in operating the co-op. Thank you to all the members who voted through SmartHub, returned their ballot to us in the mail, or dropped it off at our office or at our drive-thru event.

All members who participated in the election earned a $10 credit on May billing statements. In addition, all participating members who took a survey after the election were entered to win a Dometic CFX3 – 36 Liter electric cooler. Thanks again to our local Camping World distribution center for partnering with us for our grand prize!

Congratulations to Andrew Thimlar, of Zionsville for being drawn as the cooler winner! We’re proud to help power your next journey!
