More About Annual Meeting
Annual Meeting Voting: Elections are held for the three (or four) director-districts up for election. (Since the directors’ terms are staggered, three directors are elected every third year and four directors are elected the other years.) Director-Candidates were previously chosen by any combination of the associated current year’s District Meeting, Proxy Committee Recommendation, or by petition.
All members have the right to vote for District Directors by ballot at the meeting or by mail-in or electronic proxy prior to the meeting. Watch for the direct mailing of the proxy and the Annual Meeting notice listing time, date and location in The GVEC Review within Texas Co-op Power magazine: and your local newspaper each year in June.
Members have three options to vote for District Directors at the Annual Meeting. See below for more details.
In addition to the director-election, the Annual Meeting includes a presentation on the state of the electric industry as well as GVEC business. All members attending the meeting in person enjoy complimentary refreshments, entertainment, and the chance to win door prizes.
View the GVEC Annual Report detailing Cooperative business for the previous year. It is distributed to all GVEC members in the June issue of Texas Co-op Power magazine, to attendees of the meeting and posted online along with our Annual Meeting video for all to view.
