SVEC’s annual business meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, August 3, 2023. The telephone town hall-style event will update members on the latest news at the cooperative. Members will also have an opportunity to ask questions.
The results of the election for the board of directors will be announced during the meeting. Read this article to learn more about the candidates. Ballots and proxies will be mailed to all members on June 20, while members with an email on file have the option to vote electronically.
Taking a moment to fill out an SVEC annual meeting proxy puts you in the running for a $250 electric bill credit. Members who submit a proxy, or those who register online to participate in the Aug. 3 meeting via telephone, are entered into the bill credit drawing. The proxy serves as your “RSVP” if you cannot attend, and you can designate the SVEC board of directors or another member to vote on issues in your absence.
While winning one of the 12 bill credits is nice, members who return their proxy or register for the meeting are also fulfilling a vital role in their co-op membership. It helps toward establishing the necessary meeting attendance requirements to move business along, such as bylaw changes.
