2021 Annual Meeting to Remain Drive-through Event
The cooperative’s board of directors has decided to keep Walton EMC’s annual meeting as a drive-through format for one more year.
“We hoped to be back to normal for 2021, but the board wisely feels it’s a little early to have a large, in-person event,” said COO Ron Marshall. “Although COVID-19 cases are declining and vaccinations are increasing, it may be this fall before big gatherings are once again common. We just can’t take chances with the health of our customer-owners.”
The 2020 drive-through meeting was popular, with the same number of customer-owners participating that usually attend the normal event at the Walton County Ag Education Center.
“The 2021 meeting will be similar to last year except that some improvements are being made for better traffic flow,” said Marshall. “Customer-owners can expect the same friendly, efficient interaction.”
Look for detailed information arriving in your mailbox this June. You’ll want to be sure to bring the card you receive to the meeting – that makes registration even quicker. Additional information will be posted at waltonemc.com.
Those attending will receive the traditional bucket of gifts and be entered into a drawing for a $50 electric bill credit.
The purpose of the annual meeting is to give customer-owners a say in running their co-op. The most important facet of the event is the election of directors who represent those same customer-owners in determining the organization’s direction.
