Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative’s 72nd Annual Members’ Meeting (virtual)
May 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the in-person Annual Meeting of Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative for 2020 has been changed to a virtual meeting only.
How do I register and vote?
GCEC members can still vote for trustees and approve the board actions for the past year.
There are two ways to register and vote:
1. By mail. See the election packet that was mailed to you. Detailed instructions are included in the packet. Use the prepaid envelope to return your ballot.
2. Vote online at gcec.coopballot.com using the PIN that was provided in your election packet.
Please remember that the deadline to register and vote is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. If members choose to register and vote by mail, please allow sufficient time for mail processing.
Members will receive a $5 bill credit for registering and voting.
I love the prize drawings! Will there still be a way to win this year?
We love awarding them to our members!
Yes, the prize drawings will still take place. Make sure that you take the time to register and vote, either by mail or online (see instructions above). Your returned ballot serves as your prize ticket.
Once the election has ended on April 22, we will have the third party that is conducting the election on our behalf randomly select members to win the following:
• $1,000 in gift cards (40 $25 winners)
• $1,000 in free electricity (10 $100 bill credit winners)
• A 2003 Chevrolet 1500 4×4 pickup truck! (one winner)
The gift card winners will be notified by mail.
The bill credit winners will be notified by telephone (please make sure that we have your correct number!).
The pickup truck winner will be notified by telephone. Arrangements will be made for the winner of the truck to come to the office to pick it up.
My high school senior entered the scholarship drawing. Will the cooperative still award the scholarships?
Yes; we will still award the ten $1,000 scholarships to be used for college, university or vocational/technical training. We will be in touch with the students who have applied, and will find a way to draw for the awards that complies with CDC guidelines for social distancing.
How do I attend the virtual meeting?
The revised meeting will be held on the same date that the in-person meeting was scheduled for, which is Saturday, May 2, 2020. At 10 a.m. Central time, you may call a dedicated line to listen to the business portion of the meeting. The toll-free number is (833) 420-0339.
I have questions. How can I ask?
From now until May 2, if you have any questions, please feel free to email them to email@example.com. We will select a few questions to address during the virtual meeting.
What is the best source for up-to-date information?
