THE ANNUAL MEETING OF MEMBERS of Horry Electric Cooperative is set for Tuesday, May 9, on the campus of Coastal Carolina University.
Members are encouraged to attend the meeting and planners try to make it as convenient and as rewarding as possible for those who do. The co-op has a quorum requirement, established by the South Carolina General Assembly, that must be met in order for business to be officially conducted. In the S.C. Code of Laws, Section 33-49-430, quorum is defined as five percent of all members. Registering and voting on cooperative business in person is part of the S.C. Code.
As it has been for the past few years, the Registration Gift is an electric bill credit. The amount this year is $15. Remember that only members who register, in person, to participate in the meeting between the hours of noon and 7 p.m. on May 9 at CCU are eligible to receive the Registration Gift. Each registered member will not only qualify to get the Registration Gift, but will also be automatically entered into the prize drawing. Registered members do not have to be present at the time of the drawing in order to win.
Stay tuned, more to come
Official Notice/Registration Postcards will be mailed to members prior to the meeting. Members who bring their Official Notice and their ID will be able to take advantage of Speedy Pass lines at registration. Shuttles will once again run in a continuous loop from the registration locations to The HTC Center, which is where the entertainment, business meeting and prize drawing will take place.
The April edition of South Carolina Living will include important information about the Annual Meeting and there will be even more detail in the May edition of the magazine. It will be mailed at about the same time as the Official Notice.
