Farmers Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting
2014 Annual Meeting
When: Saturday, October 4th
Where: Rockwall ISD Performing Arts Center, Rockwall, Texas
Time: Registration opens at 8 a.m. Meeting starts at 10a.m.
Each year in October, Farmers Electric Cooperative holds its Annual Meeting. The event gives Farmers Electric Co-op the chance to appreciate our members and gives members the chance to participate in setting policies and making decisions. It’s also a great opportunity to learn more about the co-op.
One of the principles Farmers Electric Co-op was found founded on is Democratic Member Control, this means that we are a democratic organization controlled by our members, who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions. The elected Board of Directors is accountable to the membership.
Members elect the Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting. If a member cannot attend the meeting, they can still vote by sending in the ballot they receive in the mail each September. The Farmers EC board members serve three-year, staggered terms and represent specific geographic districts within Farmers EC’s service area. The results of the election are announced at the Annual Meeting.
