Three upcoming meetings - no elections


Fort Loudoun Electric Cooperative (FLEC) will be conducting district meetings this year, but not elections. The District 2 meeting will be at the Greenback Community Center in Greenback on Monday, August 29th. The District 5 meeting will be at the Friendsville Elementary School Cafeteria in Friendsville on Tuesday, August 30th. The District 8 meeting will be at the Madisonville Primary School in Madisonville on Thursday, September 1st. Look for the FLEC logo on signs displayed at the events to help locate the meetings. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the meetings will start at 7:00 p.m. each night. Refreshments will be served, and door prizes will be awarded at the end of each meeting to those District Members present.
Each FLEC member (customer-owner) who receives power from FLEC is encouraged to come to their district meeting to participate and get informed about the direction of their Cooperative. Generally, district meetings are held once every 3 years in each of the eight membership districts. Each month’s bill from FLEC has the member’s district # annotated on it in the top portion of the bill. When FLEC’s Board representation comes up for consideration in a district, a district meeting is held to allow for election of a Board Member, if contested. Those districts up for consideration were placed on notice by use of the local newspapers and FLEC’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter accounts. This year no one came forward to qualify for the positions other than the incumbent directors. Due to only incumbent director qualifications, there will be no elections this year. Still, this year’s meetings will allow the District Directors (Trustees) and FLEC’s staff to provide updates on the Cooperative. We look forward to seeing the membership at these meetings.
