Over 1,500 Attend MTEMC’s 75th Annual Meeting
August 20, 2011
“This year’s meeting carried special significance for our cooperative and our members,” MTEMC President Frank Jennings said. “It marked our 75th year of providing power to our communities, and we were glad to see such a good turnout.”
Members re-elected three incumbents to their board of directors seats. Incumbents Steve Seger of Williamson County (District 1), Will Jordan of Rutherford County (District 2) and Gordon Bone of Wilson County (District 4) won re-election to their seats. This year’s candidates were confirmed by a voice vote from the membership during the business meeting.
“Since no director or nominating committee petitions were submitted before the deadline,” Jennings said, “there were no contested elections this year. This eliminated the need for voting by machine both in the district offices the week prior to the Annual Meeting and at the Annual Meeting.”
In an organizational meeting following the voting, the board re-elected Bone as chairman, and then elected Will Jordan of Rutherford County as vice chairman and Mike Woods of Rutherford County as secretary-treasurer.
Mrs. Owen Layne of Rutherford County won the grand prize — a used 2005 Chevrolet Colorado extended cab pick-up truck.
“This year’s meeting carried special significance for our cooperative and our members,” MTEMC President Frank Jennings said. “It marked our 75th year of providing power to our communities.”
As part of its bylaws, MTEMC has held a members’ meeting every year since the not-for-profit cooperative was organized in 1936 by a group of Middle Tennessee citizens.
