If you are unable to attend, you can still vote by using a proxy form which will be mailed to all members with the 2011 Annual Report and the Official Notice of the Annual Meeting in the October issue of Carolina Country Magazine. Any member may vote his or her vote and (1) one proxy vote on behalf of one residential member and (1) one additional proxy vote on behalf of members such as churches, businesses, organizations or similar groups, provided the member is so designated as the authorized representative of the organization. Moreover, all proxies must be valid as determined by the Credentials and Election Committee. Proxy forms are not eligible to win prizes.
Every member of the Cooperative is encouraged to attend this once-a-year event to cast his/her vote for directors, share in community fellowship, and learn more about the business practices of Four County EMC. There will also be great prizes to be won for those who register, including electric appliances, energy credits and the grand prize of a GMC-Sierra retired pick-up truck!
