Manager’s Message — September 2020
Annual Meeting Cancellation
Following much discussion and consideration of the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and the meeting rules in place for Oregon, the Wasco Electric Cooperative Board of Directors has canceled the 2020 Annual Meeting of its Membership.
In place of the traditional annual meeting, the co-op will hold a special meeting for the purpose of electing directors, as required in the co-op’s bylaws. This meeting is Saturday, November 21, 2020, via teleconference. Please see our Special Meeting article for more information on the director election process this year.
The board of directors is deeply saddened to cancel the public gathering portion of our annual meeting for the first time in our cooperative’s history. However, it is the right decision for the health and welfare of the co-op’s members and employees. The directors and employees look forward to reconvening at the traditional in-person annual meeting in 2021.
Each year, the cooperative reaches out to its members asking for support of those less fortunate who struggle to make financial ends meet. Your contributions to our WECare program help many families each year. We are again asking for your support this month.
With your September electric bill, you will find a donation card for you to help support your friends and neighbors. Please see our WECare Program article for more information on the benefits of this program.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your cooperative, please call or stop by the office.
