We thoroughly enjoyed seeing our members at the co-op’s annual meeting, especially after a two year online-only format. Prior to the meeting, Meredith Crawford and the Mean Streak entertained the crowd of about 500 with some of their originals and covers of popular songs that had the crown tapping along.

During the business meeting, members were provided an update on cooperative business by WCEC’s GM and CEO, Trey Teaff. Cathy Roberts, Board President also made the announcement that $2 million in capital credits were retired and these will be credited to members accounts in December. Attorney John T. Wright announced the results of the election of directors. Cathy Roberts, incumbent and District 5 Representative and Jane Roberson, incumbent and District 6 Representative, will continue to serve three more years

Following the meeting, per usual, there were many prizes, donated by WCEC’s vendors, raffled off to members. Additionally, WCEC’s grand prize, a $500 VISA gift card, was won by member Mark and Marie McDonald of Hawkins.

To thank those who took the time to vote in the elections, early ballots received by Sept. 26, 2022, were entered into an Early Bird Prize Drawing for a $500 Visa Card. Also, all who voted were entered into a drawing for 1 of 20 $100 electricity credits. Those prize winners are in the table below. Credits will be placed on the winning members accounts by October 14, 2022.  Congratulations all!
