Celebrate our great community with York Electric at our 79th Annual Business Meeting for members on Saturday, May 9, 2020. We have been hard at work planning a fun-filled day, including a children’s zone, live music, food vendors and more. In a few months, we will be publishing proposed amendments to our current bylaws that will need to be approved by the membership, as well as more details about the meeting. Members who register will receive a $20 bill credit and will be entered to win door and grand prizes. Please review the Annual Meeting bylaw excerpts pertaining to nominations of trustees included in this issue. As a member, you are the most important part of YEC, and your input is essential.
