We want to thank Eastern Illini members who attended Member Appreciation Days in Paxton, Sidney, and at the Iroquois County Fairgrounds. It was great to see you. This was the first year for the drive through, say hello, and pick up to-go meals appreciation events. We hope you enjoyed them. Hats off to our employees who went above and beyond to make certain everything ran smoothly. The Member Appreciation event at Iroquois County Fairgrounds culminated with the EIEC Annual Meeting which began at 6:30 p.m. in the 4-H Building.
Kevin Moore, Chairman of the EIEC Board of Directors, confirmed the notice and proof of mailing for the meeting. The meeting minutes and Treasurer’s Report were also approved. Members heard from President/CEO Bob Hunzinger as to the impact COVID-19 had on the Cooperative. He also shared information about the future plans for Eastern Illini Electric Cooperative.
Guy Hall, Attorney for the Co-op, determined that quorum had been achieved and he announced that the bylaw amendment was approved with 530 yes votes and 17 no votes.
Three members of the Board of Directors ran uncontested and were reelected for three year terms.
