Democratic member control is one of the seven cooperative business principles. One membership, one vote. By exercising you r right to vote this June at the district meeting, you will help select a candidate to represent your area on the Central Texas Electric Cooperative Board of Directors.
Board candidates will be selected in Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 this year. Those meetings will be held in Ingram, Mason, Llano and Fredericksburg. The other three meetings, in Comfort (District 1) and Cherokee (District 6) will not hold elections however all meetings will share information relating to your co-op. CEO Robert A. Loth III will be present to update members on the current state of the electric industry and discuss current and future issues regarding the co-op. The meeting will conclude with a question and answer session where members can address concerns directly with CEO Loth.
The “example”, which is located above the maps on the dust cover of this magazine, will show you where to find your district number on your mailing label. Once your district number is verified, you can find the location of that meeting by referring to the maps. Remember to keep the registration card on the front cover and bring it with you to the meeting along with identification for faster registration.
According to the CTEC bylaws, members must be present at their designated district meeting to vote and participate. Attendees will receive a $10 bill credit, per membership, on their electric bill. Those in attendance will also be eligible for several door prizes at each meeting.
