CEO Message – March 2022

Every year, the cooperative conducts an annual meeting of the membership. The purpose of the meeting is to elect directors, share previous years’ financial results and provide an overall cooperative update.

The 2022 Southern Indiana Power annual meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 19, at 7 p.m. at Tell City Jr./Sr. High School's auditorium. If for some reason the COVID-19 pandemic forces any modifications to the meeting plans, we will notify members as soon as possible.
Southern Indiana Power’s annual meeting has traditionally been a place for old friends to gather and new friendships to form. We also reflect upon the cooperative's future. Just like other industries, your cooperative is evolving to meet the needs of the membership. That is why we will continue to offer a mail-in registration to allow better access to all members. We encourage all members to register for the annual meeting and vote for your board of directors by utilizing our mail in registration/ballot option. New this year, we are planning to offer a video option to watch the meeting live as well as posting this same video on the cooperative’s website to be viewed anytime by our membership. Look for more details on this option in next month's issue.

This month, members will receive the mail-in registration/ballot materials with complete instructions to register for the annual meeting. Simply place your completed registration/ballot in the enclosed envelope and it will be returned to a secure mailing address. Members can also bring the information to the office and place it into our locked ballot box before noon on April 19. The registrations/ballots will be scanned in and counted under the supervision of Southern Indiana Power’s legal counsel. However, if you would rather bring your registration to the annual meeting and register/vote that night please feel free to do so. We want to give members several options so you can choose which is most convenient for you.

All members who return their registration/ballot will be entered for a chance to win one of 25 cash prizes totaling $3,000. Prize drawings will be conducted at the cooperative office on Wednesday, April 20. Winners will be randomly selected by a computer drawing and contacted as soon as possible. Winners will also be posted on the website.

Director election results will be announced at the annual meeting and listed on our website and Facebook page as soon as the next business day.

Don't worry if you cannot attend this year's meeting. The 2021 cooperative financials and my annual CEO report will be available for your review in the June issue, as well as on our website.
I look forward to this event and the opportunity to provide you an update on your cooperative every year.
