Annual meeting returns June 4, 5
A year ago, as we were all doing our best to protect ourselves and each other from COVID-19, Laurens Electric Cooperative postponed its Annual Meeting of Members. This was an unprecedented, but necessary, move that led us to a new way to hold an annual meeting. In September, we held the Laurens Electric Annual Meeting of Members drive-through edition, with a record number of you registering.
I think that achievement is just one of many points of light that our cooperative has experienced during this recent period of darkness. In times such as these, especially, everybody needs a hero. We have many here at Laurens Electric, beginning with our lineworkers and operations staff. In significant ways, they changed how they operate, without sacrificing the reliable delivery of electricity to you each day. Our members services team has continued to provide the best care and support to our members during these difficult times. The entire Laurens Electric membership continues to step up to help their neighbors through programs like Pay it Forward.
I can think of no better way to head toward the light at the end of this tunnel than the 2021 Annual Meeting, which will return the first weekend in June. Many of you let us know how much you liked the convenience of drive-through voting and registration. So, in the interest of continued safety, you will again be able to come by our main office in Laurens Friday, June 4 or Saturday, June 5, register and leave with a $20 bill credit and the chance to win a 2014 Chevy Silverado among many other door prizes. You’ll also be able to view the business meeting through your member portal on Saturday at 12:30pm.
We look forward to seeing you next month and to serving you every day.
