Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative Holds Annual Meeting of the Members

Despite temperatures in the upper 90s, hundreds of members of Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC) gathered for the organization’s 74th Annual Meeting of the Members on Wednesday June 20, 2012, at the Cooperative’s Pavilion in Chase City. Over 700 people braved the heat to participate in the election of Board members, hear operational and financial reports from Cooperative staff, and enjoy some fellowship with fellow Cooperative members.

Prior to the business meeting, attendees had the opportunity to learn more about programs and services offered to MEC members to help keep their power bills low, including free home energy audits and no cost/low cost ways to save electricity.  Another booth featured the Co-op Connections discount card, a benefit of Cooperative membership that has saved MEC members more than $221,000 on prescriptions alone and countless additional dollars on discounts offered by local businesses.

Approximately 700 people consisting of Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative members and their families gathered on the third Wednesday in June to hear reports from the officers, elect members to serve on the board, and conduct other business.
