ECE Annual Meeting emphasizes the power of co-op membership

Free breakfast and co-op hospitality, what a way to start the day. Plan to attend East Central Energy’s (ECE) 78th Annual Meeting Saturday, April 12 at Rush City High School.
ECE invites members to bring their families to this fun, information-packed social gathering. Members who attend will learn the importance of their voice in their cooperative. The business meeting gives them an opportunity to ask questions and gain helpful information about the electric industry and issues that may impact their bill. Results of the director elections will be announced toward the end of the meeting.
The day begins at 8 a.m. with a free and delicious pancake breakfast, served by co-op employees. Popular annual activities such as bingo and the bucket truck rides will return. Members are encouraged to bring a non-perishable item for the local food shelf.
Interactive displays will highlight ECE’s energy-saving programs and electrical safety. SmartHub, the new mobile app and Web version that allows ECE members to report power outages, pay their bill from anywhere 24/7 and receive news and alerts from their co-op, will be demonstrated. Free licensed child care will be available throughout the event.
The business meeting begins at 10:15 a.m. ECE President/CEO Steve Shurts will review the cooperative’s financial report for 2013 and recap significant events from the co-op’s past year.
