Postponement of 2020 Annual Meeting of Members
We find ourselves in challenging times that require us to look at things in a different perspective. The purpose of this letter is to provide notice to the members of Sawnee EMC that the 2020 Sawnee EMC Annual Meeting will be “postponed” until October 2, 2021, due to concerns with the Corporation’s ability to hold an Annual Meeting safely and not spread COVID-19 among our members and our staff. The safety of everyone involved is our first and foremost concern.
As you may know, the Bylaws state Sawnee EMC is generally required to hold an Annual Meeting of Members each year on the first Saturday in October in order to present the membership with certain reports from the officers, provide an update on activities within the cooperative, including the most recent director election results, and to act upon matters that might properly come before the membership, at that time.
The Bylaws authorize the Board of Directors to set an alternate Annual Meeting date, other than the one established in the Bylaws. That said, the Board has determined October 2, 2021, will serve as the date for the 2020 Annual Meeting of Members.
We will be using this year's Annual Report to provide insight into the “day to day” affairs of the Cooperative, including our audited 2019 financial report. You can also find updates on the status of the 2020 director elections on our web site at sawnee.com/elections. There was no unfinished business from the 2019 Annual Meeting of Members and any “new” business will be addressed by those members in attendance on October 2, 2021.
In closing, I will encourage you to contact the staff should you have questions concerning the Annual Meeting approach that is being deployed for 2020.
We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting in 2021.
Rodney H. Reese
Sawnee EMC Board of Directors
