As a member-owned cooperative, we host an annual meeting to give our members an opportunity to hear updates and reports from officers and management as well as receive a financial update and view results of director elections.
We also take this time to thank our members for their continued support of Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative. We encourage families to attend and participate in bucket truck rides, experience Lineman 360 - a virtual reality experience that provides insight to being a line man, enjoy a picnic style supper, and much more!
Nominating Committee Process
Director elections begin with Harrison County REC reaching out to our members for volunteers to serve on the nominating committee, and members may seek election to the board of directors in the district that he/she currently resides in through the nominating committee or petition nominations
Voting for Directors
Each member household is entitled to one (1) vote and no more than one (1) vote which is submitted either by mail, or at the meeting of the members. If a husband and wife hold a joint membership they shall jointly be entitled to one (1) vote and no more upon each matter submitted to a vote at a meeting of the members.
Any member who is absent from any annual or special meeting of the members may vote by mail upon any motion, resolution, or election to be acted upon. Members will receive a notice of the meeting along with an exact copy of such motion, resolution, or election to be acted upon, and such absent member shall express their vote in writing for each motion or resolution in the space provided and enclose each copy so marked in a sealed envelope bearing their name and addressed to Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative. When the written vote is received by mail from any absent member it shall be accepted and counted as a vote of the absent member for the meeting.
