Broad River Electric will hold it’s first ever Drive-Thru Annual Meeting of the Membership in 2020. In past years, our Annual Meetings are held in the meeting hall adjacent to the Gaffney office. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent worldwide pandemic, we postponed our meeting, hoping that circumstances could change for gatherings. However, with this looking unlikely, Broad River Electric has shifted gears and changed our plans to best suit members needs. We plan to have our first-ever meeting that has not taken place in person in our 80 year history.
As a democratically run organization, our first priority was to insure our members could vote for nominated Board of Trustee candidates. We believe we have c come up with an easy way for members to vote, within the safety of their vehicles. Registration and voting for this meeting will also take place for a total of four days, beginning Tuesday, August 11, Wednesday, August 12, and Thursday, August 13. Hours for these three days for registration and annual meeting will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Further, on Annual Meeting day, August 15, we will have registration and voting from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The business meeting and the prize drawings will take place on Facebook Live on the Broad River Electric Facebook page at 5:30 p.m. Unlike years past, members do not need to be present to win any of our fabulous prizes. Prizes this year include two zero-turn Gravely mowers, a John Deere lawnmower and a 2011 Ford F-150.
Members who register and vote will receive an 80th year anniversary Lodge cast-iron pan and a logo umbrella. If you’re planning to vote, bring your picture ID and your Registration Tickets from the bottom of your July 2020 SC Living Magazine.
