For more than 80 years, we’ve been owned and governed by those we serve. KEC’s Annual Meeting is a great way to stay informed about what’s happen at your cooperative. Our 81st Annual Meeting is set for May 13, 2019, at Lake City Church in Coeur d’Alene. Registration begins at 5 p.m. and the meeting starts at 6 p.m.
Each member household attending the Annual Meeting will have a chance to win many prizes, including a $300 KEC bill credit and a Nest Learning Thermostat (valued at $249). Members must be present to win. Each member household attending the Annual Meeting will receive one $20 meal certificate redeemable at local participating restaurants.
2019 Board Election
The election opens April 5, 2019. Watch your email and mailbox in early April for your board election packet. This is your chance to elect those who will represent you and your interests on our Board of Directors. In 2019, members will elect directors for districts 1 and at-large. They are contested elections with two candidates for each district. Elected directors serve three-year terms. Learn more about the candidates below. Click each name for candidate bio and speech video.
For your convenience, you can vote by mail ballot or online. Use the information in the election packet you receive by mail or email to vote. The deadline to vote online is April 26, 2019. Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by April 26, 2019, to be counted. Members who vote in the election will be entered into a drawing for a $100 KEC bill credit. Members voting online help reduce KEC’s balloting costs and will also be entered into a drawing for a unit in KEC’s Community Solar Project (valued at $456). The solar unit may be transferred or gifted to another member but is not redeemable for cash.
Election results will be announced at the Annual Meeting by our Credentials and Elections Committee. This committee ensures the election is handled in accordance with KEC’s Bylaws.
Please note: The 2019 director election will be conducted by mail and online only. In-person voting will not be available at the Annual Meeting. This helps ensure the timeliness and integrity of the voting process without unnecessarily extending the Annual Meeting.
