Making History: First Drive-through Annual Meeting a Success
On Sept. 24, 25 and 26, 5373 members took part in Laurens Electric Cooperative’s first-ever drive-thru registration and voting for their board of directors.
Members elected Charles Adair to represent District 4; Willie Belle Blakely to represent District 5; Marcus E. Cook to represent District 7; and Mitchell Powers to represent District 9.
The membership also voted to pass the proposed Bylaws amendments, as well as voting “yes” to keep voting for every seat up for election on the Board each year.
Board Secretary/ Treasurer Mitchell Powers reported that the co-op’s finances remain strong, which allowed the board last year to approve the return of more than $1 million to members in the form of capital credits.
The co-op continues to experience solid growth in our service area as one of the fastest growing electric co-ops in the state. This leads to stability for the future for the co-op, and the community.
The business meeting was broadcast at LaurensElectric.com, and prize winners can be found on the web site and on social media.
Thanks to the members of Laurens Electric who helped us adapt to these unique times and allowed us to turn a challenge into a success.
