Power On: 2024 Claiborne Electric annual meeting scheduled for June 8

by Minden Press-Herald

Drive in and win – more than $20,000 in cash prizes planned

Claiborne Electric will host a drive-through Annual Meeting on June 8. 

The Co-op will have two sites available for members to register – one at Claiborne Electric’s headquarters office (12525 Hwy. 9 in Homer), and one at D’Arbonne Woods Charter School (9560 Hwy. 33 in Farmerville). On June 8, members can drive through a multi-lane site in either location to register for the meeting, be entered for all prize drawings, and cast a ballot for the District One Director seat. Drive-through registration will take place from 9 a.m. until noon.

At each location, members will drive in and remain in their vehicles through the registration process. Claiborne Electric employees will be directing members to lanes. After members are finished registering, they will be directed to the exit.     

For the registration process to flow smoothly, members are asked to bring the registration card they received by mail in mid-May to the meeting. Members who bring their registration card will be entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card. 

The top portion of the registration card will serve as the voting ballot for the District One Director seat. All members who register for the meeting will be able to cast a ballot to elect Incumbent Hez Elkins or Nominee Tommy Carr to represent District One on Claiborne Electric’s Board of Directors. Members are urged to bring the registration card in its entirety to the Annual Meeting. Ballots will be marked and detached from the registration card along a perforated line, ensuring a private vote. Ballots will be cast in locked boxes, and the registration portion will be collected for the prize drawing. Election information, including a candidate questionnaire, can be found in the news section at www.our.coop.  

Several cash prizes will be awarded after the conclusion of the meeting. Members who participate will be eligible for cash prizes of $1,000, $2,000, $3,000, $4,000, and a grand prize of $5,000. Names will also be drawn for 50 $100 cash prizes. All prizes will be drawn after the conclusion of the meeting, and winners will be posted online and contacted directly. 

Members are urged to have their registration card and photo ID ready to present upon arrival. The primary member on the account must be the one to register and present identification. If a spouse will attend the meeting without the primary member, both spouses must visit a Claiborne Electric office before the Annual Meeting to form a Joint Membership. With a Joint Membership, either spouse can present ID and represent that membership at the meeting.

An organization that is a member of the Co-op may designate a person to attend the meeting to register on behalf of the organization. At registration, that person will need to present a letter on the organization’s letterhead, signed by the leader of the organization, naming them as the representative.

The theme for the 2024 Annual Meeting is “Power On.” With constant change seemingly around every corner, Claiborne electric is positioned for strength and growth. With new management at the Co-op, a new power supply contract in the works, and changes occurring continually locally, regionally, and across the nation, members can rest assured that Claiborne Electric will “Power On.” Through any change, Claiborne Electric will continue to meet members’ needs by providing safe, reliable, and affordable power. 

Please make plans to join us for a few minutes to participate in the 2024 Annual Meeting on June 8!
