2020 Annual Meeting

In an effort to protect one another from contracting and spreading COVID-19, CEC has regretfully decided to cancel their traditional annual meeting and member appreciation event at Whitehall Camp and Conference Center in Emlenton. However, the director election and a nonpublic, annual business meeting will still take place. 

Members will still receive a director election ballot in July. However, the ballot has been expanded to allow for member participation within the respective areas of the normal business meeting. To view the supporting documents included with your ballot, please click here

The results from this ballot will be pronounced at the nonpublic, annual business meeting on Aug. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at CEC’s headquarters in Parker. To view the agenda for this meeting, please click here

Out of an abundance of caution for the well-being of cooperative members, CEC has decided to hold the annual business meeting without the physical presence of the membership and is accommodating members’ participation with an expanded ballot. After the meeting, the results will be posted to CEC’s website. A recording of the meeting will also be available for members to view. 

Please stay safe and know that CEC will continue to operate and provide the highest-quality service possible for you, the members we serve. COVID-19 may necessitate changes in how we interact, but it will not change what we do. We hope to see you all at Whitehall in 2021.
