Annual Meeting

Join our livestream!

In 2019, Piedmont Electric began taking steps to provide more openness and access to our cooperative by providing online and mail-in voting for the first time. Members appreciated the easier voting process and took full advantage. Participation in the election for our board of directors tripled from the previous year and then increased further in 2020.

Last year also marked another step forward in making it easier for Piedmont Electric members to participate with their cooperative as we streamed our annual meeting live on and provided a copy on our website for members to watch at any time. Members could participate in our annual meeting from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

We decided to use Facebook for the live meeting because it is widely adopted among our membership and we already had a strong following. We know that some members do not use Facebook, but we wanted to provide the simplest access to our meeting without having to register for a newer service like Zoom. Posting the video to our website enabled everyone to watch the meeting once it was concluded.

Members can find our annual report, annual meeting materials and watch the recorded meeting on our website on this webpage. We hope that this information will help you better engage with your local cooperative.

Stephen B. Hamlin, President & Chief Executive Officer
