Gibson EMC Annual Meeting a Success
Gibson Electric Membership Corporation hosted a large crowd of members and friends at its 76th Annual Members' Meeting on March 22 at South Gibson County High School in Medina. This year Gibson EMC moved its meeting from August to March to correspond with its change to a January through December financial year.
Scott Myatt and Steve Short, the featured entertainment and a talented duo, entertained the crowd with the “mellow” music of artists who enjoyed success in the seventies. Members ate free barbecue and hot dog dinners during the performance and then participated in the business meeting.
Gibson EMC Board Chairman Mack Goode opened the business meeting by thanking members for their participation and support. “As a member, you are a part-owner and you have a voice in your co-op’s operation through the trustees you elect,” Goode said. “We are your friends and neighbors and we work hard to represent you well by advocating for excellent service and affordable electricity.”
In his report, Gibson EMC President and CEO Dan Rodamaker called on the crowd to communicate with legislators regarding environmental regulations that will impact the future cost of electricity. He also urged those present to vote. “Please exercise your right to influence the outcome of the election this fall.” Rodamaker said. “But before you do, take time to research and understand the candidates’ positions on energy policy. Being engaged, communicating with our legislators and leveraging our democratic right to vote are our most effective means for keeping your electricity affordable,” he said.
