ACCESS ENERGY COOPERATIVE
Annual Meeting of Members
AUGUST 1, 2023
Every member is invited and encouraged to attend your annual meeting of members to hear what’s going on at your cooperative, to enjoy a free meal, to be entertained, and to be involved—and it’s all free!
The full schedule and details will be available mid-March 2023. The Grand prize in 2023 will be a $500 bill credit! You must be present to win.
Online voting will be available again for the 2023 election. Check your annual meeting packet when you get it in July for information on how to vote online. We will give away a $100 bill credit to one member who’s name is drawn from the list of members who voted online.
