This year, Victory Electric’s 75th Annual Meeting will be held at the Western State Bank Expo Center in Dodge City on Thursday, August 13, with registration beginning at 5:30 p.m., and the business meeting at 6 p.m. It will be an abbreviated business meeting lasting no more than 30 minutes to ensure the health and safety of all in attendance. We will be practicing social distancing. Please bring the registration card you receive in the mail to the meeting for express registration and for a registration gift. Only the members in attendance who hold an active cooperative membership will receive the registration gift. No meal will be provided.
In accordance with Victory 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 will be to approve the minutes of the last annual meeting, review the financial report for the past fiscal year, announce trustee election results, discuss and vote on bylaw changes, and discuss any and all matters properly brought before the meeting.
Purchasing electric power from Victory Electric gives you membership in the cooperative and, as a member, you have voting rights. Your participation is a fundamental power that flows from you to your electric cooperative. You have the power to discuss issues with friends and neighbors and 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.
The annual report (in English and Spanish) and language for the proposed bylaw changes are coming soon and will be added below.
We look forward to seeing you there!
