Annual Meeting

2020 Annual Meeting Changes

White River Valley Electric’s concern for community extends to the health and welfare of each member, neighboring friends, traveling visitors, and all those we do business with each day. Many hours have been spent evaluating best alternatives to conduct White River’s 2020 Annual Meeting in light of possible restrictions and health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic.

After weighing the pros and cons of all options, we will join other cooperatives and utilities around the nation and move to a virtual meeting for this year. The business meeting will still occur on September 12, but it will be live streamed from our website and social media channels. More specific information will be posted here as it is finalized.

Many avenues were considered in the decision to host the meeting virtually, first and foremost the health and safety of our members and employees. We also realize convenient voting options will encourage participation from all members. With the format change, we can also drastically cut the cost of a traditional meeting which has turned this scenario into a tall glass of lemonade. We are happy to pass that savings on to you while still delivering need-to-know information about your Cooperative.

Submit your questions

Our first full annual report will be sent directly to the homes and businesses of each member prior to the meeting. The report will cover the 2019 year-in-review as well as a look into the Cooperative’s future.

If there are questions for the staff that the report does not cover, we encourage members to send in questions to be addressed during the meeting through our Member Alliance Program. The Member Alliance Program offers a direct pipeline to the Cooperative’s 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. Comments and suggestions will be reviewed each time the committee meets.

The answers to your questions, the annual report, the meeting video, and election results will all be made available on our website.
