Voting for CREC's Board of Directors starts July 9

May 31, 2019

Mark your calendar for the start of voting in CREC’s Board of Directors 2019 election.

In next month’s issue of Current Times, and on the CREC website, you’ll have an opportunity to learn about your director candidates for this year’s election.

Voting may be done online, by requesting a paper ballot, or if you choose to attend the annual meeting on August 22, you can vote there. You can also visit CREC’s headquarters in Troy or in Lake Saint Louis to vote online if you do not have computer access at home.

This year kicks off a new format for the annual meeting, which will be held at CREC’s branch office in Lake Saint Louis at 4 p.m. The event consists of only the annual business meeting that CREC bylaws require, and will not include entertainment or a meal, nor any attendance prizes. Drawings for giveaways will still be held but will be tied to voting rather than attendance at the annual meeting.

Members who vote are eligible to be entered into the giveaway drawings — annual meeting attendance is not necessary to become a winner. Please note: winners of free electricity will be drawn from all who voted (whether online, paper ballot or in person) early in the week after the annual meeting.

The annual meeting will also be streamed online via YouTube if you are interested in watching the event. More information on how to access the link to the meeting stream will become available as we get closer to the annual meeting date.
Here is the timeline for the election:

  • July 9 — Opening day of online voting and first day paper ballots can be mailed
  • August 12 — Last day to request mail-in paper ballots  
  • August 19 — Online voting closes/Deadline for paper ballots to be received
  • August 22 — Annual meeting at CREC Lake Saint Louis office (voting open at meeting)
