BURGAW, N.C. – Four County EMC will hold their Drive-Thru Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 9, at the cooperative’s Elizabethtown District Office, 2668 NC Highway 242 South. The meeting is open to all Four County EMC members. Registration runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., so come whenever convenient for you! Members are asked to enter from the Highway 701 side of Highway 242.
With the well-being of our members and employees in mind, this year’s drive-thru format is designed to follow COVID safety protocols. Members will register, receive their gifts, and enter prize drawings all in one drive-thru stop. Although there won’t be food and entertainment this year, there are still chances to win one of 21 energy credits or the grand prize of a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck!
Terms of the following four directors expired last year: S. Franklin Williams – West Duplin Directorate District; R.W. Blanchard, Jr. – East Sampson Directorate District; Carlton Raynor – East Duplin Directorate District; and Arlester Fullwood – At-Large. These directors are running for a two-year term to continue the ‘staggered’ nature of the board’s terms.
Terms of the following three directors expire this year: Steven Matthis – West Sampson Directorate District; Ronald J. Allen – West Bladen Directorate District; and S. Eugene Jordan – West Pender Directorate District. These directors are running for a three-year term.
These seven incumbents will be presented for re-election on October 9.
If you are unable to attend, members can still vote by using a proxy form which will be mailed to all members with the 2020 Annual Report and the Official Notice of the 2021 Annual Meeting in the October issue of Carolina Country Magazine. Any member may submit his or her vote and (1) one proxy vote on behalf of one residential member and (1) one additional proxy vote on behalf of members such as churches, businesses, organizations or similar groups, provided the member is so designated as the authorized representative of the organization.
