PARKER, Pa., Aug. 11, 2020 - Safety is the culture of Central Electric Cooperative (CEC). In an effort to protect one another from contracting and spreading COVID-19, CEC has regretfully decided to cancel their traditional annual meeting and member appreciation event at Whitehall Camp and Conference Center in Emlenton. However, the director election and a nonpublic, annual business meeting will still take place.
Members should have still received a director election ballot by mail in July. However, this ballot was expanded to allow for member participation within the respective areas of the normal business meeting. The results from this ballot will be pronounced at the nonpublic, annual business meeting on Aug. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at CEC’s headquarters in Parker. Detailed directions on completing the ballot and how to vote can be found on the ballot. Additionally, if members have any questions they’d like addressed at the annual business meeting they are encouraged to do so through CEC’s website.
Out of an abundance of caution for the well-being of cooperative members, CEC has decided to hold the annual business meeting without the physical presence of the membership and is accommodating members’ participation with the expanded ballot. After the meeting, the results will be posted to CEC’s website. A recording of the meeting will also be available for members to view.
CEC has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and continues to prioritize the health and safety of members, staff, and potential event participants.
CEC encourages all members to stay safe and know that CEC will continue to operate and provide the highest-quality service possible. COVID-19 may necessitate changes with interactions, but it will not change what CEC does.
