Manager’s Message — November 2021

Special Meeting Set For November 20

Ned Ratterman headshotDue to the ongoing pandemic and our continued efforts to keep our members, employees, and community healthy, this year’s in-person annual meeting has been canceled. In its place, we will hold a special meeting virtually via Zoom on Saturday, November 20.

This year’s director elections will take place exclusively via mail-in voting. Your ballot will be mailed to our auditing firm, Connected Professional Accountants LLC, which will validate and tabulate the election results.

The information booklets—including virtual login information, résumés of the candidates for election, financial reports, and the absentee ballots for the director election—were mailed to each member November 1.

We know a virtual meeting is not the same as seeing you in person, but we want to remain connected with our members and inform you of the happenings at the cooperative. Members who attend via Zoom will receive a $25 bill credit on their December billing statements.

If you have any questions about the meeting or your cooperative, please contact our staff at (541) 296-2740.
