Dear Members,

I know it’s hard for you to believe, but preparations are well underway for Randolph EMC’s annual meeting of the membership. It only seems like a couple of months ago when we were together at our previous annual meeting.

So please mark your calendars now for the 81st Annual Meeting, which will be held on Friday, June 21, 2019, at Southwestern Randolph High School in their air‑conditioned gymnasium.

A change for this year is the business portion of the meeting, which will start 30 minutes earlier, at 6:30 p.m.

This year’s theme is: Power to a Brighter Energy Future. I encourage you to be an active member-owner and attend the annual meeting of your electric utility.

Unlike investor-owned utilities, those receiving their electric service from Randolph EMC own the cooperative. The members have a voice in the operation of the business through their participation at the annual meeting.

Your cooperative’s electric distribution system covers over 1,500 square miles of area in five counties. It stretches from Mt. Gilead to Snow Camp, from Badin Lake to Goldston, and from Randleman to Pinehurst. Each year since its inception, dedicated members from across Randolph EMC’s service territory have converged to conduct the business of the cooperative. This is a tradition that should continue and grow even stronger in the future.

The annual meeting is important because it gives our members the opportunity to hear reports about the condition and operation of your cooperative over the past year. The electric utility industry is undergoing tremendous change, with many challenges and opportunities, and this gathering allows your leadership to provide updates on our strategic response to this changing environment.

Unlike investor-owned utilities, those receiving their electric service from Randolph EMC own the cooperative. The members have a voice in the operation of the business through their participation at the annual meeting.

In addition to the business portion of the meeting, members will elect three individuals to represent their interests on the Board of Directors. Randolph EMC’s Board of Directors is comprised of nine members who meet monthly to hear reports, make decisions and set the strategic direction for the cooperative. The three directorate districts that will stand for election this year are: District 1, currently held by Lee Isley; District 3, currently held by Larry Routh; and District 6, currently held by Sue Spencer.

The annual meeting is not all business, though. It’s a great time to get together with old friends and a chance to establish new friendships from other parts of the Randolph EMC cooperative family.

There will be music, homemade ice cream and lots of information about electric vehicles, energy efficiency and the many programs we offer that deliver value, help you save money on your electric bill and make your lives easier.

Another reason to attend the annual meeting is that we award more than 100 really nice door prizes that range from small appliances to local pottery. We’ll also have bicycles of all sizes and other fun prizes for the children who attend. No one leaves empty-handed, though. Each registered member that attends will receive a gift at the conclusion of the evening.

In next month’s Carolina Country, you will receive the annual report and additional information about the annual meeting. I look forward to seeing you there!

Cooperatively Yours,

Dale signature
