84 Annual Meeting


Make plans to join us on Thursday, May 2, 2024 for the 84th Annual Meeting of the Membership and Member Celebration at Glad Tidings Church in Morehead City. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. Members will enjoy a delicious meal catered by Strange and Sons, and entertainment from the Broad Creek Middle School Jazz Band and East Carteret High School Mariner Singers. The first 600 members to register at the meeting will receive a surge protector.

The business meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Cooperative directors and CEO Jake Joplin will provide members with a look back at 2023, report on the financial stability of the cooperative, and what is on the horizon.

Stay til the end of the meeting for your chance to win one of several cash prizes, up to $1,000 in free electricity, or a retired cooperative pick-up truck. 

We hope to see you there!

Your Voice

CCEC conducts its Annual Meeting of the Membership each year "to elect directors, hearing and passing upon reports covering the previous fiscal year, and transacting such other business as may properly come before the meeting."

The cooperative is not owned by far-away shareholders, and it is not run by an appointed board of directors. We are run by a democratically elected board of directors – a board elected by you and given the privilege to serve because of your votes. Three candidates are up for re-election each year. If there are contested races, elections are conducted by mail, with the results announced at the annual meeting. If directors run unopposed, we do not send out ballots for those director seats.

Beyond the election, the annual meeting also is an opportunity for members to learn about programs offered by CCEC and get the chance to get to know the co-op staff and directors. On the flip side, our annual meeting makes it possible for us to gather feedback from you on how we can better serve you and your family.

A favorite part of our meeting is our prize giveaway. Traditionally, we give away several $75 cash prizes, up to $1,000 in free electricity for six months, and a vehicle retired from the co-op's fleet.
