2020 CREC Annual Meeting

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


PLEASE NOTE – because of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) current situation, visit this page often for potential updates related to procedures for voting and attending the annual meeting.

  1. What is the format of the CREC annual meeting?

A change was made to the format of the annual meeting in 2019. The meeting, now on a smaller scale, precedes the board’s regular monthly meeting. The meeting will be streamed live online and a video recording of it will be made available on the CREC website in the week following the meeting. Members who are subscribed to the co-op’s e-newsletter, Co-op Connections, will receive an email with information on how to access the meeting online.

  1. When and where is the 2020 annual meeting?

The 2020 meeting will be held August 27 in the afternoon prior to the Board’s August 2020 regular meeting. It is held at the co-op’s Lake Saint Louis office at 8757 Hwy N., Lake Saint Louis, MO 63367.

  1. If I don’t come to the meeting, how can I vote?

Voting will be available prior to the meeting, online and by paper ballot, as it has been for the last several years. You can vote online or you can request a paper ballot starting July 15 until August 24. Members still have the option to attend the annual meeting to vote at that time if they choose.

  1.  What about prizes, are they still awarded?

Yes. Free electricity prizes are awarded. The drawing will be from the pool of members who vote either online or by paper ballot prior to the meeting, and those who do choose to attend and vote at the meeting. Anyone who votes will still be eligible to win prizes, however, there is not a requirement to be present at the annual meeting in order to win if your name is drawn.

  1. Where can I get more information about the meeting?

Further information will be offered in CREC's newsletter, Current Times (Rural Missouri), through our e-newsletter, CREC Connections, on our website (cuivre.com), through social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube) and through local media/newspapers. You are also welcome to contact CREC directly by phone if you have a specific question. We’ll do our best to ensure that you are kept informed!
