York Electric’s Annual Meeting is one of the benefits of being part of an electric co-op. We are already hard at work planning this fun-filled day for you, our members. They’ve already reserved a $15 power bill credit for all members who register.
Kids will enjoy finding their way through the inflatable obstacle course, and all those attending will be entertained by the Carolina Rhythm Band. There will be lots of door prizes, too. You might even win a $1,000 power bill credit!
The meeting gives us the opportunity to get to know you better. Your role in YEC is essential! Please review the Annual Meeting bylaw excerpts pertaining to nominations of trustees and let us know if you have any questions.
