DTC to host Annual Meeting on Sept. 15
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 12:00 pm
DTC Communications will host its annual meeting on Saturday, Sept. 15, at the DeKalb County Fairgrounds in Alexandria. Enjoy special live entertainment beginning at 3 p.m. by DeKalb Idol winner, Josh Isaac.
Incumbents Bennie Curtis, Randy Campbell, and Ronnie Garrison are running unopposed in the Alexandria, Liberty, and Smithville exchanges, respectively.
Proposed amendments to the cooperative’s bylaws will be on the ballot and are included in the 2012 DTC Annual Report that was mailed to our members on September 6th. DTC CEO, Craig Gates said, “This year’s bylaw amendments and the unopposed races of our board members are a testament to DTC’s commitment to our members. The first bylaw amendment will allow DTC members to attend the annual meeting throughout the DTC territory, if the Board approves a new
location each year. The other bylaw amendments have two objectives: one, it helps DTC ensure that all members are treated fairly and second, it ensures that undue influence from interested third parties will not gain influence over the company.” Gates went on to say, “the management team supports the board’s decision to bring these bylaws forward for a vote.”
The gates to the DeKalb County Fairgrounds in Alexandria will open at 11:45 a.m., with voting from noon until 4 p.m. The business meeting will begin at 4 p.m. or once the last person in line at that time has voted.
Only DTC members may vote, and each member must present photo identification. For a single membership, only that individual may vote. Either member of a joint membership may vote, but not both. In the case of a business membership, a business affidavit is required.
