May Message from the Manager
Invitation to attend YOUR annual meeting
It’s that time of year once again—annual meeting time! On behalf of Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative, I would like to personally invite you to join us for your cooperative’s 74th annual meeting Wednesday, June 12th. This year’s annual meeting will be held at the cooperative’s Crosby Outpost located just East of Crosby along Highway 5.
The annual meeting is a great opportunity for members to learn about the operation of the cooperative and the programs and services offered. It provides an opportunity for you to get to know your co-op directors and staff and to visit with members of our co-op community.
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. Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative is governed by a democratically elected board of directors – a board who is given the privilege to serve because of your vote. Our directors are members of your community and are concerned with the issues you face every day because they face them too.
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 for a chance to learn more about your cooperative, visit with fellow co-op members and enjoy a complimentary meal.
And don’t forget the prizes! This year’s progressive cash drawing will be $250. One name will be drawn from the entire membership for a $250 cash prize! The member must be present to win. If the member drawn is not present, next year’s cash prize will be increased to $350.
The 2018 Annual Report and official annual meeting notice will be mailed to all members the last week in May. We encourage you to review the report and bring any questions you have to the annual meeting.
As always, the directors and employees remain dedicated to providing you with safe, reliable and affordable electric service. We look forward to seeing you in Crosby on June 12th!
Until next time,
