2014 Annual Meeting of Members

One of the great benefits of being a member/owner in your local electric cooperative is that you have a major say in how we operate.

View the annual report/annual meeting program.

Listen to the annual meeting promotional spot.

On Thursday, June 12, from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. we will host your annual meeting in Paxton, where you have a chance to elect board members and receive a status report on the co-op.

At Eastern Illini, though, we take it a big leap further. Our goal is to make your annual meeting a family-friendly and entertaining event that you don’t want to miss!AM2014_Promo
