HAMILTON COUNTY ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE ASSOCIATION
HCEC Annual Meeting Canceled;
Director Election To Go on as Planned
The 82nd Annual Membership Meeting of Hamilton County Electric Cooperative has been canceled due to concerns about having a large indoor gathering with COVID-19 precautions continuing to be recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The meeting is usually held the first Friday in August at the Hamilton Independent School Districts’ Chandler Craig Auditorium with approximately 1,000 attendees.
As we continue to look out for the health and well-being of our members, employees and communities, the board of directors and management feel it’s in the best interests of everyone to cancel this year’s meeting. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these uncertain times.
However, the election of directors by mailed ballots will carry on as usual. To maintain equitable geographical representation of all areas on the board of directors, Hamilton County Electric Cooperative’s bylaws provide for seven districts from which directors are to be elected. The three-year terms of the directors representing District 2 and District 5 expire this year.
- District 2 is the area east of U.S. Highway 281 in Hamilton County served by the Cooperative.
- District 5 is the area west of U.S. Highway 281 in Lampasas County and including all area in San Saba and Llano Counties served by the Cooperative.
One ballot will be mailed to each membership in a separate mailing June 23. Any member may vote for one candidate in each district listed on the ballot. You do not have to live in one of these districts to cast your vote. Voter membership must be confirmed for votes to be counted. Please include your name and address on the ballot return envelope so the co-op can use it to confirm voter membership. Please do not enclose bill payment in the ballot envelope.
The votes will be counted Friday, August 6. Members must mail their ballots in time for the ballots to arrive in the Hamilton County EC post office box by noon Friday, August 6. Results of the Director Election will be announced on Hamilton County Electric Cooperative’s website, hamiltonelectric.coop, and Facebook page, and published in the October issue of Texas Co-op Power.
