September Message from the Manager
Invitation to attend YOUR annual meeting
On behalf of Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative, I would like to personally invite you to join us for your cooperative’s long-awaited 75th annual meeting. This year’s annual meeting will be held Wednesday, October 21, at the cooperative’s headquarters located in Columbus.
The annual meeting is a great opportunity for members to learn about the operation of the cooperative and the programs and services offered. It is also an opportunity for you to exercise one of the greatest benefits of being a member of an electric co-op—voting for the upcoming year’s board of directors.
This year’s meeting will look much different than any annual meeting of the past. In order to keep our members and employees safe amidst the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s annual meeting will be a drive-in annual meeting. Members will receive a sack lunch to enjoy while listening to the meeting through their car’s FM radio.
The 2019 Annual Report was mailed to all members the last week in May. We encourage you to review the report and bring it and any questions you have to the annual meeting.
An official notice of the annual meeting will be mailed to members later this month. Members will need to bring this notice to the meeting to receive an attendance gift and a $75 bill credit.
If you have never attended the annual meeting or if it has been a few years, we encourage you to participate in this year’s annual meeting. We look forward to seeing you in Columbus on October 21!
Until next time,
