Free food, a gift for registered members, special demonstrations and displays, and a chance to win cash, free electricity and a pickup truck – that’s what is in store for the CCEC Annual Meeting on May 3 at Glad Tidings Church in Morehead City.
Doors open at 5 p.m., and the first 600 registered members will receive a pair of silicone oven mitts. All co-op members who attend and register will get a ticket for drawings at the close of the meeting. Those drawings include cash prizes, up to $1,000 in free electricity (for bills mailed July through December, 2018) and a Ford Ranger pickup truck retired from the cooperative's fleet.
Attendees can learn more about energy safety and our newer account payment and management technologies. Carteret-Craven Electric Foundation board members will be on hand to sign up members for our Operation RoundUP® program. Those who aren’t participating, but choose to sign up for the nonprofit humanitarian grant program, will be entered in a drawing for a gift bag full of goodies. The co-op’s Relay for Life team will host a free hotdog dinner served up by employee volunteers.
Entertainment by talented students from West Carteret High School’s Jazz Band and Chorus will be featured in the church sanctuary just prior to the opening of the business meeting.
In addition to those activities, co-op members will learn about the organization's operation over the past year, plans for the future, and more.
The terms for directors from Districts 1, 3 and 4 expire this year. All three candidates were unopposed. They are: District 1 Director Deloria Irby, District 3 Director Arland Bell and District 4 Director Fred Fulcher.
“We encourage members to attend and learn more about their cooperative,” said CCEC Communications Director Lisa Galizia. “After all, our co-op members are actually the owners of the organization, and they have a say in what we do.”
Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative provides power to more than 33,000 members in Carteret, Craven, Jones and Onslow counties and is part of Touchstone Energy®, a nationwide family of co-ops exhibiting the core values of integrity, accountability, innovation and commitment to community.
