Co-op welcomes Dairyland Power CEO Barbara Nick to 79th annual meeting June 9
Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative will hold its 79th annual meeting at Frederic High School, 1437 Clam Falls Drive, on Friday, June 9.
Barbara Nick, president and CEO, Dairyland Power Cooperative (right), is this year’s guest speaker. She will share Dairyland's plan to diversify the generation resources that power our lines and your homes. Dairyland provides wholesale power from its headquarters in La Crosse to 24 member distribution cooperatives, including Polk-Burnett.
“We look forward to gathering with co-op members each year,” said Polk-Burnett Board President Ed Gullickson. “The annual meeting is your chance to get to know your co-op directors and employees, learn about co-op performance and provide feedback. We are always looking to improve our service to you and your family.”
The evening begins with a pie and ice-cream social at 5:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. Co-op employees and directors will be on hand during the social to answer questions about rebates, propane, billing and other co-op programs and services.
The business meeting will begin in the auditorium at 6:30 p.m. The agenda includes a keynote address from Dairyland President and CEO Barbara Nick, as well as a state of the cooperative report by Board President Ed Gullickson and General Manager Steve Stroshane, a Q & A member forum and results of the 2017 board election in districts 1, 2 and 3.
All co-op members who attend the annual meeting will receive a free pound of cheese from Burnett Dairy and an LED light bulb. The co-op will also draw for 10 $50 electric bill credits; winners will be randomly selected at the end of the meeting, and members must be present to win.
“A significant advantage of co-op membership is member participation,” said Gullickson. “I invite you to attend our 79th annual meeting in Frederic June 9.”
