Policy to Attend and Present Information at a Board Meeting


Election Information

CFEMC and the Board of Directors believe the foundation of any successful cooperative is member trust and transparency. That’s why for over 10-years, CFEMC has contracted with Survey & Ballot Systems’ (SBS) to manage our election process, so our members can count on an accurate and certified election result. This service allows our members the option to vote by mail, online or in-person. Each year, members receive an annual meeting registration packet mailed to their homes in advance of the annual meeting. Inside each member will find a copy of the meeting notice, candidate information, procedures on voting, and a copy of the EMC annual report. We believe it is every member’s responsibility to exercise their right to vote for their representation.

Qualification of Directors: No person shall be eligible to become or remain a board member of the Cooperative:

  1. Who is not eighteen (18) years of age or older.
  2. Who is not a member of the Cooperative.
  3. Who is not a bona fide resident of the district the member represents.
  4. Who is in any way employed by or financially interested in a competing enterprise.
