EnerStar Electric Cooperative holds Annual Meeting of Members

The weather did not dampen the tradition as EnerStar Electric Cooperative members gathered for their 79th Annual Meeting of Members on March 24. Members enjoyed a complimentary pancake and sausage breakfast prior to the meeting. Once again, members were able to participate in the meeting through real-time voting. Each membership was given a remote device to help “voice” their answers to questions offered by President/CEO Mike Clark throughout the meeting.

Thank you. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Enerstar would like to thank the following vendors and businesses who donated door prizes to our 79th Annual Meeting of Members:

EnerStar searching for former members 1977 - 1981

As a not-for-profit rural electric cooperative EnerStar is owned by the members who receive electricity from our cooperative. At the end of the year after all the revenues have been collected and all the expenses are paid the remaining margins (profits) are allocated to members who received electric service during the year. These are called capital credits. They represent member equity in our cooperative. The EnerStar Board of Directors reviews the financial health of the cooperative each year to determine if it is financially feasible to authorize a capital credit retirement.

Annual Meeting - Director Elections

EnerStar directors are cooperative members elected democratically by the Cooperative membership. The official notice of the meeting and voting ballots were mailed to all members in mid-February. Ballots must be received in the cooperative office by Friday, March 23, 2018, at 4:30 p.m. or can be brought to the annual meeting on Saturday, March 24, 2018.
