Join Us for Your Annual Members Meeting
September 23, 2023
San Patricio Electric Cooperative’s Annual Members Meeting will be held at on Saturday, September 23 at the Beeville Exposition Center.
Registration will open at 8 a.m. and the business meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. During the registration period, we invite you to visit our employee booths to learn all about your cooperative and the tools we use to serve you every day. We also invite you to participate in a free health fair, conducted by Christus Spohn. To take advantage of the chemical profile, you must fast for at least 8 hours before the screening. A light breakfast of muffins, coffee, juice and soft drinks will be available following your tests.
As a member-consumer, the annual meeting provides an excellent way for you to exercise your ownership of the cooperative. It gives you the opportunity to speak with co-op employees and board members, to learn more about your cooperative and possibly leave with a great door prize.
During the meeting, the results of the board of director’s election will be announced. We encourage you to make your voice heard by casting a ballot in this election. You will receive your ballot the first week of September. For your convenience, you can vote by mail or online.
The purposes of the meeting are to:
- Elect directors of the cooperative.
- Consider reports on the affairs of the cooperative
- Transact any other business, which may properly come before the meeting.
SPEC Director Election
We’re governed by seven local members, who serve rotating three-year terms on our board of directors. Because our board members live right here in our local area, they have a unique understanding of our local needs and guide the cooperative accordingly.
Each year, we hold an election for our board of directors, with each district up for election once every three years. All members are invited and encouraged to vote in this election. Ballots will be mailed and emailed to all members around the first of September.
This year, SPEC has two director districts up for election: District 2 and District 6. Members in these districts are invited to run for a position on the board of directors.
Details about the election and nominating processes were mailed to our members in June. If you would like to make any suggestions for nominees, please contact any member of the Nominating Committee listed in that notice.
If you need the district number for a nominee, please contact us at 361-364-2220 ext. 135.
If you are interested in serving on SPEC’s Board of Directors, contact any member of the Nominating Committee or complete the nomination by petition form. If you need assistance downloading the form, please call 361-364-2220 ext. 135 and we will provide them for you.
Nominating petitions must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on August 3. Submissions should include at least 25 signatures from supporting members in the director district up for election, and biographical information about the prospective nominee.
