The Poudre Valley REA’s annual membership meeting (PVREA) will once again be held virtually due to ever-changing state and county guidelines regarding large gatherings. But there are still ways for members, and interested community partners, to stay engaged and informed.
The Poudre Valley REA Virtual Annual Meeting will be held Saturday, April 17 at 9 a.m. at www.pvrea.coop/annualmeeting. Members who tune in will be entered to win door prizes, one of two grand prizes, and high school seniors can enter to win the annual Luck-of-the-Draw scholarship. One grand prize features a home electrification package complete with an electric lawnmower, snowblower, leaf blower, hedge trimmer, Ring doorbell, and Nest thermostat. A second grand prize is a voucher to select an electric bike that fits the winner’s lifestyle. Winners will be contacted directly, and a list of winners will be posted to PVREA’s Annual Meeting webpage.
Annual meetings are important events for the membership of electric cooperatives. These events provide members with an operational and financial overview of their cooperative. Member engagement and participation are longstanding pillars of the cooperative business model.
Other topics covered include a member spotlight regarding the Cameron Peak Fire’s impact, highlights from the past year, and where the co-op is headed moving forward.
