NLI’s 86th Annual Meeting Goes Virtual
Spring has sprung! As many of you know, May is when we typically hold our annual meeting. Last year, when COVID- 19 hit, we, unfortunately, had to cancel our annual meeting. This year, we have decided to change things up a bit. Our goal is to continue to keep safety a priority. Therefore, we have decided to conduct Northern Lights’ 86th Annual Meeting virtually Wednesday, May 12 at 6 p.m. PDT.
No internet? No problem! Members can join the meeting by telephone. Visit our Annual Meeting blog post or call (800) 326-9594 for details on how to join the meeting.
The virtual meeting will include the usual order of business, an update on your electric cooperative’s financial status and upcoming projects, the announcement of this year’s scholarship winners, and the results of the director election. Our team has been working diligently to organize a successful meeting where everyone who wants to participate can. As a member-owner of Northern Lights, we appreciate your interest and involvement in your cooperative.
This year, there are two districts up for election. These seats are currently held by Director Jill Vandegrift, District 2; and Director David Pemberton, District 4. Members residing in these districts should have already received an official ballot in the mail with information regarding the candidates running in their district.
I look forward to a successful annual meeting and hope you can join us online or by phone.
