A Supplement of Oklahoma Living Published by Lake Region Electric Cooperative for its members. Vol. 4


No. 2 Member Satisfaction Survey Energy Efficiency Tip of the Month


Your heat pump can use 10 percent to 25 percent more energy if it’s not properly maintained, which includes


regularly checking and replacing the air filter when it’s dirty to keep parts from working too hard or even becoming damaged. Keep brush and plants tidy around the outdoor unit, and dust the return registers inside.

Members’ opinions help better the cooperative.


During the next few months, Lake Region Elec-


tric Cooperative (LREC) will be participating in a Touchstone Energy telephone survey that is con- ducted to measure the quality of service provided to you our member. This survey will ask several questions about your energy usage and your sat- isfaction with the cooperative. It should take ap- proximately 15 minutes to answer all questions. TSE Services, a professional call center con- ducting the survey will identify themselves as calling on behalf of Lake Region Electric Coop- erative. They will be conducting calls Monday- Friday from 4:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. and on Sat- urday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


The purpose of the survey is to receive input from members to guide the board and manage- ment in their decision making. Members will be asked questions on a wide variety of topics. The survey results will be presented to the board this spring.


LREC extends a big “THANK YOU” to all of our members who will take the time to partici- pate in the telephone survey. We truly appreciate your interest in helping us meet your needs.

View Lake Region Electric Cooperative’s bylaws online at: www.lrecok.coop


Lake Region Electric Cooperative members will be asked to vote for three trustees at the coopera- tive’s annual meeting of the membership, Saturday, April 27, 2013 at the Hulbert Public Schools in Hulbert, Oklahoma. Any member in good standing may submit nom- inations by petition on forms provided by the coop- erative. These forms will be available at the Hulbert office between February 26, 2013 and March 22, 2013. Each nominating petition must include 15 or more member signatures. Certain minimal qualifications are required by basic law and the cooperative’s bylaws for one to be eligible for election or appointed to and to serve on the cooperative’s board.


LREC Powerline Press It is the ultimate legal responsibility of the board to


ensure that these requirements are met and complied with. If the board should determine that an incumbent, nominee, or potential appointee lacks or has lost any of the necessary legal qualifications, it is the duty of the board to remove such incumbent or to declare such nom- inee or potential appointee ineligible for election, which- ever may be the case. By adopting, publishing and appropriately dissemi-


nating this policy and the attached related affirmation form, it is the board’s respectful hope that trustee incum- bents, nominees, or potential appointees will not only be fully apprised of these requirements, but mindful of their importance in deciding whether to continue or com- mence service on the board.
