Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative will hold its 82nd annual meeting Wednesday, July 8, at 1 p.m. The meeting will be online. No in-person meeting will be held this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We invite co-op members to attend from the comfort and safety of your home,” said General Manager Steve Stroshane. Now more than ever, continuing to provide reliable power with efficiency and extraordinary service has been our priority. Our response to the health emergency has focused on keeping the lights on for our members, ensuring a safe work environment for our employees and doing the right thing to support our communities and prevent the spread of the virus. With these goals and the uncertainty of our times, we decided to move our 2020 annual meeting to a web-based format. We thank you for your membership and hope you can join us.”
The annual meeting agenda includes a state of the cooperative report by General Manager Steve Stroshane, results of the 2020 board election in districts 1, 2 and 3, and a member Q&A forum, giving members an opportunity to make comments and ask questions through an online chat. Polk-Burnett Board President Ed Gullickson will call the meeting to order.
“We look forward to gathering with co-op members each year,” said Gullickson. “This year, our online format will look a little different, but the annual meeting remains an important way for co-op directors, employees and members to connect. We invite you to attend to learn about co-op performance and provide feedback. We are always looking to improve our service to our members and community.”
For members who can't attend online July 8, the annual meeting will be recorded for viewing at a later date. Printed reports will also be available at co-op offices and upon request following the meeting.
