Annual Meeting

What is an annual meeting? An annual meeting is a yearly gathering where Wake Electric members come together to participate in the democratic decision-making process that governs the cooperative. Members vote for their board directors, who play a crucial role in representing the collective interests of the membership. The annual meeting also involves presentations and discussions about the cooperative’s business activities, financial performance, and future plans.

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.
