2020 Annual Meeting Goes Online on Oct. 29
We will be hosting the annual meeting of the membership virtually on Oct. 29 at 6 p.m. Join CEO Jake Joplin and CCEC Board President Ben Ball as they share highlights of 2019 and look at current activities and future plans.
Out of caution concerning the COVID-19 outbreak, the CCEC Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Membership scheduled for May 7.
You can "attend" the virtual meeting at facebook.com/CarteretCraven/Live. You do not have to have a Facebook account to attend. Just follow the link.
Members are reminded return the postcard included with the October edition of Carolina Country magazine to register for giveaways, including one of 18 $75 cash prizes, up to $1,000 in free electricity or a pickup truck retired from our fleet. Winners will be announced during the live event and will be notified on Friday, Oct. 30. You do not have to tune in to the meeting to win, but those who do will be entered in a drawing for a weekend getaway package provided by Atlantis Lodge and Rucker John’s Restaurant.
Member Appreciation Event
From Oct. 1-23, CCEC also will host a member appreciation event. Members are invited to stop by the co-op offices in Newport or Havelock, or at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum in Harkers Island or Cape Carteret Town Hall to pick up a “swag bag” full of CCEC goodies.
Each year on the first Thursday in May, CCEC conducts its Annual Meeting of the Membership "for the purposes of electing 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 investors, and it is not run by an appointed board of directors. We are run by a democratically elected board of directors – a board who is given the privilege to serve because of your votes. Elections are conducted by mail each year, 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 the opportunity for members of to enjoy some good food and entertainment. Members also 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.
