74th Annual Meeting of the Members
Saturday, April 10, 2021
Each year in March or April, LEC holds the Annual Meeting of the Members. This event is an opportunity for the members to learn more about their cooperative. They also transact any other business besides trustee elections and proposed By-Laws amendments to come before the membership.
As a member of LEC, you have the right to get involved with your cooperative. The main vehicle for doing this is electing the Board of Trustees. These 10 fellow members meet once a month to review cooperative policies, financials and evaluate the direction of the cooperative. Trustees are elected each year by Lincoln Electric members by mail-in ballot. Ballots will be mailed to all Lincoln Electric members with their official Notice of Meeting at the beginning of March. Completed mail-in ballots must be completed and submitted as noted on the ballots.
District 6 (Upper) Trustees Mike Garner, Joel Graves, and Ethel White will be up for re-election at the 2021 Annual Meeting. Members wishing to become a trustee nominee must submit a completed trustee petition to Lincoln Electric by December 30, 2020. Please see the attached trustee packet for complete details.
At the meeting, LEC's General Manager also gives an update on cooperative happenings and our auditor gives a financial presentation for the previous calendar year. There is a light breakfast served. Each attending membership receives a door prize and is entered to win other great prizes, including the Grand Prize offering of Free Electricity for a Year*. Luck of the Draw scholarship winners are also drawn randomly at the Annual Meeting. Please check out our Luck of the Draw Scholarship page to learn more about this program.
The 74th Annual Meeting of the Members will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2021, at the Lincoln County High School auditorium at 312 9th Street East, Eureka. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. with the business meeting beginning at 9:00 a.m. Please note those interested in being entered for the Luck of the Draw Scholarships must apply by the deadline, meet all eligibility requirements, and register at the Annual Meeting by 9:15 a.m.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Annual Meeting!!
