 Join Us for Our Annual Meeting June 11

As consumer-members flip their Sam Houston Electric Cooperative calendar to June, they see the Annual Meeting is set for Tuesday, June 11.

The meeting will be held in person at the Polk County College/Commerce Center in Livingston. The facility is located at 1017 North 59 Loop, with entrance at Pedigo Park. Shuttles will be available to take attendees from the parking area to the facility. Doors will open at 12 p.m. for registration. The meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m.

“We are looking forward to seeing our member-owners in person this year,” said Rachel Hawkins, chief communications officer. “The Co-op’s employees are excited to host the Annual Meeting of Members in person again.”

Members present at the meeting will be able to visit with other member-owners, as well as meet the Board of Directors and Cooperative management. Cooperative member favorite, Walter Plant, will provide entertainment. A door prize drawing will also be held. Cooperative managers will report on Co-op business, including the announcement of Board election winners.

Ballots were distributed to the membership in May. Members have the opportunity to vote for their Board of Directors by mail-in ballot or online. A quorum of 10 percent is required to elect the Board of Directors.

“All Sam Houston EC members received a paper ballot and may still mail in their ballot if they prefer, but I encourage everyone not to wait too long,” Hawkins said. “Ballots received by June 4 will be eligible for the grand prize drawing.”

Members can also follow the online voting instructions that accompany the mailed ballot. Both electronic (online) and mail-in votes will be eligible for the prize drawings at the 2024 Annual Meeting of Members. Members do not need to be present for the grand prize drawing to win.

To be officially counted, ballots must be received, either online or by mail, no later than 10 a.m., Monday, June 10.

We’ll see you at the Annual Meeting!
