In accordance with Twin Valley Electric’s bylaws, each year the cooperative holds a meeting of the members to communicate the cooperative’s activities and financial status for the past year.
The purpose of the annual meeting is approve the minutes of the last annual meeting, review the financial report for the past fiscal year, vote in trustee elections, discuss and vote on bylaw changes, and discuss any and all matters properly brought before the meeting.
Purchasing electric power from Twin Valley Electric gives you membership in the cooperative and, as a member, you have voting rights. You have the power to elect your board representation. That democratic right — which includes one vote by every cooperative member — is one of several important differences between electric cooperatives and investor-owned electric utilities. This is your opportunity to have a voice in the business affairs of the cooperative, the business you own.
