Now that former Allegheny Power customers are part of the Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC), they are invited to attend REC’s annual meeting on Saturday (Aug. 14) at Courtland High School in Spotsylvania County.
Those attending are asked to register at the high school from 8 to 9:30 a.m. on the day of the meeting.
The annual meeting, according to the REC, is “one of the benefits of your Cooperative membership.” It provides an “opportunity to participate in the election of directors, meet many of REC’s employees and learn more about your Cooperative.”
Those people unable to attend the annual meeting were encouraged to return the “designation of proxy card” attached to the outside of the July issue of the REC’s magazine, Cooperative Living, to a REC office by 5 p.m. today (Aug. 12). The closest REC offices are:
The Blue Ridge District Office, 137 Kelley Court, Front Royal, VA 22630, phone 540-622-2001.
The Culpeper District Office, 601 Madison Road, Culpeper, VA 22701, phone 540-825-8373.
All valid proxy cards were to be entered into a drawing for a grand prize of $500.
Three directors are to be elected to the board of directors during the annual meeting for the 2010-2013 term, but only one of those seats (for Region 2) was contested. Those two candidates are: Thomas T. Grady, an environmental engineer with a 35-year career in power generation and utility operations for large industrial plants, and Robert G. Marmet, an attorney who works as senior energy analyst at the Piedmont Environmental Council. Both Grady and Marmet live in Fauquier County.
