Manager’s Message — August 2019

2019 Annual Meeting

Jeff DavisAlthough November is several months away, preparations for Wasco Electric Cooperative’s 80th annual meeting are underway. The meeting is Saturday, November 23, at the Fort Dalles Readiness Center, 402 E. Scenic Drive, The Dalles.

During the meeting, members will vote on three director positions that are expiring—one from each of the three districts.

At its August meeting, the board of directors will appoint the member committee that nominates candidates to run for those positions. This committee will meet in early September.

If you are a member willing to serve on the board of directors, please let us know. We will give your name to the nominating committee members for consideration. See page 8 of this issue for more information.

Current directors whose terms are expiring and will seek re-election this year are Bob Durham, District 1, serving on the board since 1994; Jim McNamee, District 2, serving on the board since 2006; and Jerry Duling, District 3, serving on the board since 2016 and current board treasurer.
