Most of us lead busy lives. We find ourselves multitasking, constantly checking phones and email to keep up with the demands of modern life. Thanks to technology, we can accomplish many tasks electronically and remotely to be more efficient. And with so many pressing obligations, we like to protect our “spare” time. Invitations to attend in-person meetings and gatherings are weighed carefully as we decide whether or not our time and effort to attend is beneficial. The answer to the question, “what’s in it for me?” must be compelling. You may think attending West Florida Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting/Member Appreciation Day would be easy to lump into the “no benefit to me” category. However, I’d ask you to think again.
WFEC exists to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy to its members (that’s you!). As a member of the community, you have a perspective that is valuable. At the annual meeting, co-op leaders will discuss priorities and challenges, and discuss the financial health and priorities for the coming years.
Perhaps you may feel that you have nothing to add to the discussion, so there is no need to attend the annual meeting. However, every energy bill you pay to the co-op helps ensure better service and reliability for the whole community. Your dollars are reinvested locally into improvements that impact the reliability and affordability of your energy.
If you’ve never attended our annual meeting, or if it’s been awhile, please stop by. Our co-op family looks forward to visiting with you!
Entertainment will be provided by The Cedar Creek Band from Chipley, Florida and we’ll have food, fun and door prizes. Other activities planned for the day include a health fair, face painting and more, so mark your calendar for the annual meeting on Saturday, April 27 from 8:00 a.m. until Noon.
