The Tipmont REMC Annual Meeting is an opportunity to gather with members of the co-op community each year – to catch up, hear what you have to say and enjoy some good food and fellowship.
This event is not only a chance to visit with members of our co-op community – it’s also a great opportunity to learn about programs offered by Tipmont and get to know your co-op staff. Our annual meeting makes it possible for us to gather feedback from you by providing a forum where you can let us know how we can better serve you and your family.
This is an occasion to discuss and learn more about the issues affecting our local communities. It’s also an opportunity for you to exercise one of the greatest benefits of being a member of an electric co-op, by voting for the upcoming year’s board of directors.
Democracy in Action
Tipmont is not owned by far away investors, and it is not run by an appointed board of directors. We are run by a democratically elected board of directors – a board who is given the privilege to serve because of your vote.
Our directors are members of your community. They are concerned with the issues you face every day because they face them too. And don’t forget – all members of Tipmont are eligible to run for the board – that includes you!
A democratic and open election is one of the many elements that make our electric cooperative stand out from other utilities. Having a voice in who makes the major decisions that directly affect your life and your family is a right we all share as Americans. We all vote for our state and federal Congressional representatives, but not every American has the right to vote for those who will represent community interests within their electric utility. You have that right, so why not exercise it?
