Branson, MO –
White River Valley Electric Cooperative (WRVEC) hosted its 84th Annual Meeting on Friday, September 1. The meeting was live streamed and included interactive opportunities for members to participate in.
The meeting highlighted general updates from WRVEC. Election results from the eligible board seats were announced and proposed bylaw amendments were passed with tremendous member support. Additionally, there was a live Q&A session where members provided feedback on topics that were important to them that were answered by a live panel.
“What sets Cooperatives apart from other electric service providers, is member involvement,” said Cassie Cunningham, Vice President & Chief Growth Officer. “We are thankful for our members taking the time to be involved in the election process and in using their voices to help set the direction for our organization’s operations.”
WRVEC members voted in record numbers casting 2,468 votes online or through mail-in ballots. The winners of the 2023 board election are listed below:
- John Cooper (District A)
