If you cannot attend, you can still vote using a proxy form, which will be mailed to all members with the 2022 Annual Report and the Official Notice of the Annual Meeting in the October issue of Carolina Country Magazine. Any member may vote their vote and one proxy vote on behalf of one residential member and one additional proxy vote on behalf of members such as churches, businesses, organizations, or similar groups, provided the member is so designated as the authorized representative of the organization. Moreover, all proxies must be valid as determined by the Credentials and Election Committee. Proxy forms are not eligible to win prizes.

Every member of the Cooperative is encouraged to attend this once-a-year event to cast their vote for directors, share in community fellowship, and learn more about the business practices of Four County EMC. There will also be great prizes to be won for those who register, including energy credits, electric appliances, and the grand prize of a 2015 Ford Escape SUV! Refreshments will be served, including your choice of a BBQ or chicken sandwich, potato chips, and a soft drink.

We look forward to seeing our members on October 9!
