WAKE FOREST, NC— Wake Electric held its 2012 Annual Meeting on March 23, and it was a great success. More than 556 members, plus their guests, attended the meeting held in the Louisburg College Auditorium.
Attendees had the opportunity to hear reports on grid modernization and technology from Don Bowman, manager of engineering and on the Monitor & Manage program and PowerUp, Wake Electric’s new prepay billing option, from Scott Poole, manager of customer service. Members also had the chance to ask senior management questions about Wake Electric.
Three members re-elected during the business meeting to serve three-year terms on the Wake Electric Board of Directors were Bill Bailey of Wake Forest (District 2), Suzy Morgan of Wake Forest (District 5) and Howard Conyers of Franklinton (District 7).
Children attending the meeting with their parents and caregivers also had a great time participating in special activities planned for school aged children. The activities all had an “All Things Natural” theme and were provided by Crafts on Wheels. The kids thoroughly enjoyed decorating flower pots, as well as painting and designing bug boxes, sun catchers and birdhouses.
Members in attendance were entered into a drawing for cash prizes totaling $5,000. The lucky winners are listed below.

NOTE: Wake Electric has a policy that if we draw the registration card 1) of a church, business or civic organization, or 2) of an employee of Wake Electric who is also a member or 3) of a board of director of Wake Electric who is also a member, then we will grant that member a cash prize, but will draw again until a non-employee, residential account is drawn. When this occurs, more cash prizes are awarded than the number of cash prizes originally advertised. The winners falling into that category this year are: Lisa Alexander ($100), Wake Forest (employee), and HM Dickerson ($100), Oxford (board of directors), Town of Franklinton ($100), Franklinton (organization) and Belton Creek Church ($500), Oxford (organization.)
