82nd annual Meeting of members
Due to continued Covid-19 restrictions, the meeting format is still under consideration.
White River Valley Electric Cooperative does everything with our members in mind. You are not just customers, but members who own and control the organization. Voting is your right and responsibility as a member, and participation is key to our success.
The Bylaws, Governance, and Engagement Committee continues to help evaluate what we do at the Cooperative to provide best-in-class service for our members. This includes updating necessary bylaws and continuing to review our processes annually. Three amendments will be presented to the membership for a vote this year. Please consider the following information before casting your ballots.
A “YES” vote on each amendment will enable the continued convenience in member participation, allow for more information sharing, and includes additional improvements to our governance practices.
The White River Valley Electric Cooperative Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for three seats on the WRVEC Board of Directors. Candidates will be voted upon by the members at the Cooperative’s Annual Meeting. Due to continued restrictions, a number of options are being evaluated to provide the safest environment for the meeting. More information will be provided in the future months.
Three directors will be elected, one from each of these districts: Taney County, District B; Christian County, District C; Douglas County, District D (see black-boxed areas on map).
The committee seeks interested and qualified candidates who reside in these districts to serve three-year terms.
The deadline for candidate applications is no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, June 14. The qualified applicants will be asked to attend a nominating committee interview on June 24 at the White River Valley Branson office, 2449 St. Hwy 76 E.
The committee has final authority to select a slate of qualified and vetted nominees from those candidates who apply.
Members were encouraged to send in questions to be addressed during the meeting through our Member Alliance Program — the Cooperative’s direct pipeline to the Bylaws, Governance, and Engagement Committee. The committee was formed to evaluate best practices to continually improve the organization and help the Cooperative to better reach the membership. The answers to your questions, the annual report, the meeting video, and election results will all be made available on our website.
