Celebrate our 80th Annual Meeting
The Power of Generations
Make plans to join us for the Jo-Carroll Energy 80th Annual Meeting of Members on Wednesday, June 12. Attending the annual meeting is one way you can be actively involved in your cooperative.
The meeting will be held at West Carroll Middle School in Mount Carroll. Registration begins at 5 p.m. followed by the business meeting at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m.
Members will be able to talk with other member-owners, meet the board of directors and cooperative management. We will have displays and information about a variety of co-op programs and services.
During the meeting, the board chairman and management will report on co-op business. Members will vote on bylaw amendments and elect three directors by a vote of acclamation. (Jo-Carroll's bylaws provide for election by vote of acclamation at the annual meeting if there is not more than one candidate.)
Members attending the annual meeting receive a $10 bill credit (one per membership). Make sure to bring along the registration card from the Annual Report (mailed in May) to be entered for additional drawings at the conclusion of the business meeting.
Bring along your Co-op Connections card or have the app downloaded to receive a special gift at the Co-op Connections booth.
While at the meeting, we're asking members to share an email address with us so we can keep you updated on co-op news, programs and services. Our 2018 member survey indicted that email is the number one way members said they want the co-op to share information with them. Electric members who share their email address will be entered to win a half panel in the South View Solar Farm. Forms will be available at the registration booth and can be returned to the renewables or communications booths.
After the meeting, we'll draw for 10 $500 Director's Scholarships. High school seniors who submitted applications by May 1 and attend with at least one parent are guardian are eligible.
