District Meetings Completed for 2015 Incumbants are all nominated, one draws an opponent


N


ortheast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative members in three districts gathered this summer and exercised their right to democratic member control. In doing so, they took care of some important cooperative business.


Democratic member control is a unique component of the cooperative process. It is not only a longstanding tradition, but one of the founding principles on which the cooperative form of government was built.


By registering at district meetings and nominating individu- als who they feel are best qualifi ed to represent them on the board of trustees, cooperative members do their part to en- sure the stability of the entire organization for the foreseeable future.


Meetings this year were held in Districts 4, 6 and 8. Members attending the meetings received complimentary refreshments and gifts before helping the co-op take care of business.


NEOEC staff members took time during district meetings to provide updates on various projects throughout the coopera- tive.


Prize drawings were held at the conclusion of each meeting with winners claiming electric bill credits of $250, $100 or $50.


All three incumbent trustees were nominated, in addition to an opponent for District 4. As nominees, they now await confi r- mation or election by the cooperative membership during the general election at annual meeting Saturday, September 19, 2015, at the Grove Civic Center.


Trustee Billy R. Kimbrell hosted the District 8 meeting at the Vanmen Senior Center in Oaks on July 27. A total of 26 members registered at the gathering. District 8 member Leo Chamberlain had his name drawn as the winner of the $250

Prize winners at the District 6 meeting included Doug Bailey who won the grand prize ($250 electric credit) Jim Hendrickson who took home the $100 electric credit; and John Boston who won the third place $50 credit.


The District 4 meeting, held at the First United Methodist Church in Vinita, was called to order by trustee John Myers on July 30 and attended by 57 members. John Myers and oppo- nent Thomas Kemohah, a former trustee of the cooperative, were nominated to run for the District 4 position. Patty Green was the lucky winner of the $250 grand prize electric credit for District 4. Kay Nantz won the $100 credit, and Chandy Cowley claimed the $50 credit. ■
