Over 3,000 co-op members and friends packed the Hugo Rodeo Arena for the 2013 CEC Annual Meeting. This year the co-op board moved to restrict vendor sales lessen overcrowding and to comply with state rules regarding sales tax collections.


Changes At CEC Annual Meeting Tax issue may reduce vendor booths at CEC annual meeting


t the board meeting on February 25, Choctaw Electric trustees approved several changes regarding the display and sale of goods and services at the CEC Annual Meeting. After considerable debate the board agreed on the following:


A


1. Vendors will be prohibited from selling goods or services at the Annual Meeting. Booths will be used for display only.


2. The sale of raffle tickets or chances is prohibited.


3. No soliciting or campaigning allowed.


4. Booths must relate to the business of the electric cooperative in some way. For example, energy efficiency, home improvement, water heaters, storm windows and doors, renewable technology, etc.


The board’s decision to restrict booth sales is due to state rules regarding sales tax

collection at festivals and events. While annual meeting attendees enjoy the variety of booths and displays at the CEC Annual Meeting, the issue of sales tax would require the co-op to collect and report tax for business taking place during the event. “That’s a burden on co-op time and resources, and one that must be considered along with the desire to hold a meeting that is enjoyable for our members,” said Terry Matlock, Choctaw Electric CEO.


By restricting the types of booths allowed to participate in the annual meeting, the board hopes to emphasize the business of the co-op and place a greater spotlight on energy efficiency and energy concerns. The measure will also provide more space in the arena and increased air flow making it safer for attendees, particularly the elderly.


For information on display booths or to reserve a space, please contact Jia Johnson or Brad Kendrick at 800-780-6486, ext. 248.
