A Message from the General Manager
On behalf of the Board of Directors and employees of Claiborne Electric Co-op, I would like to let you know about an upcoming event I think you and your family will enjoy.
On April 28, Claiborne Electric will hold its Annual Membership Meeting at the Thomas Assembly Center on Louisiana Tech University’s campus in Ruston. This is an exciting day for the Co-op and its members.
During the Annual Meeting, you and your family will have the opportunity to see a performance by nationally acclaimed Bluegrass group Flatt Lonesome at 10:30 a.m. Claiborne Electric will also provide lunch. Each registered member will be entered into a drawing for one of many great door prizes and the grand prize – a new Kawasaki Mule 4x4 utility vehicle. Each member will also receive a registration gift from the Co-op, and kids can enter to win a new bicycle.
In mid-April, you should receive an Official Registration Card in the mail, printed on a large postcard. If you bring the postcard with you to the meeting and present it during registration, you will be entered into a drawing for a $500 cash card. This year we have an important vote on proposed amendments to the Co-op’s Bylaws. You can read about those proposals in the April edition of Louisiana Country, or here. Photo identification must be presented by the primary account holder to register and vote at Annual Meeting.
Registration for the meeting and prizes begins at 9 a.m. at the Thomas Assembly Center on April 28. You will be able to register until the business meeting begins at noon. During the business meeting, I will talk with the Co-op’s members about the things we accomplished in 2017 and what we have planned for 2018 and beyond. Door prizes, the grand prize and two college scholarships will be awarded during the business meeting. Members must be present to win a prize.
Once again, thank you for being a member of Claiborne Electric Cooperative. If you have any questions about the Annual Meeting, please call the Homer office at 318-927-3504 or the Farmerville office at 318-368-3011. As always, the Annual Meeting is an event for Claiborne Electric members only. I hope to see you there!
As always, if you have questions for me, please e-mail me at Mark@our.coop. I can also be reached in the Homer office at 318.927.3504, or in the Farmerville office at 318.368.3011. Again, thank you for your membership. We appreciate you.
