East Montpelier, Vt: Washington Electric Co-op (WEC) is pleased to welcome members to its annual Community Meeting, held this year at the Cabot School on Thursday, October 24. A dinner is held at 6 p.m., with the meeting following at 7 p.m.
WEC’s Board of Directors and staff will be present to update members about issues facing the electric cooperative. Topics include changes to WEC’s rate structure and improving reliability. There will also be a question-and-answer period with attendees.
“The Community Dinner is an opportunity for WEC leadership to go out to where our members live, listen to what they care about and support a cause in their community,” said General Manager Patty Richards. “Our members can ask us questions and tell us their thoughts, and we share a meal together. That accessibility is an important element of our cooperative values.”
The Community Meeting is held in a different town or village in WEC’s service area each year. Members receive invitations to the dinner and meeting through bill inserts and WEC’s newsletter. WEC pays for a buffet dinner prepared by a local group, available to members with reservations, to benefit a community project. This year, the dinner will benefit the Cabot eighth grade trip to Washington, D.C.
Members with a reservation may attend the dinner; reservations are not required to attend the 7 p.m. meeting.
