Annual Membership Meeting

SEMO Electric Cooperative’s 78th Annual Membership Meeting will begin at 7 p.m., Thursday, May 28 at the Miner Convention Center. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. In accordance with SEMO’s Bylaws, each year the Cooperative holds an annual meeting. At the annual meeting, SEMO members are able to meet with Co-op staff, meet the Board and receive reports regarding SEMO’s activities during the past year. The meeting also brings the annual Board election process to a close, as members are able to cast their ballots at the meeting and hear election results. Plus, about 80 high school seniors will receive Operation Round Up scholarships and there will be a drawing for door prizes. We hope to see you there.

Reducing Postage Costs

This issue of The Powerline/Rural Missouri is SEMO’s Official Notice of its Annual Membership Meeting.  It arrived a few days later than normal, but SEMO’s Bylaws state the printed annual meeting notice shall be delivered not more than 25 days before the date of the meeting. Rather than send a separate notification letter, we utilized this publication to save about 8,000 dollars in postage costs.

Sean’s Shout-outs

Quick shout-outs to SEMO member-owners Jeannie Henson, Lee Kent, Ernest Tate, The Metcalf Family, Gary Biehl, Bill Armstrong and Carrie Farley. Thanks to Altec for letting SEMO test its tracked digger derrick. 

Be smart. Act safe.
