Annual Meeting & Election Update - May 18, 2021
KEC’s 83rd Annual Meeting of the Membership took place at Lake City Church on May 17, 2021. At the meeting, members could view a pre-recorded video of my annual state of the cooperative, visit with management staff and board members and learn more about our energy efficiency programs. In addition, the business meeting was streamed live. Watch the video below.
Director districts 2, 5 and at-large were up for election this year. Only three candidates sought election, all incumbents, and each was nominated by the Nominating Committee. In lieu of seating these candidates by acclamation, an election was conducted online and by mail for the purpose of facilitating a quorum for the annual meeting due to possible COVID-19 restrictions. Congratulations to District 2 director Jim Robbins, District 5 director Bill Swick and District At-Large director Crystal Musselman, who retained their seats.
After the meeting, the board held a meeting to appoint the following officers: Bill Swick, Chair; Tim Meyer, Vice Chair; Roger Tinkey, Secretary and Dave Bobbitt, Audit Committee Chair.
