Part of the democracy of your electric cooperative is the Annual Meeting where you can hear the state of the cooperative over breakfast and board members are elected.

  • Door prizes
  • Hot breakfast
  • Gift for every membership
  • Kid-friendly activities
  • Community booths
  • Bucket truck rides
  • Safety demo
  • Grand prize trip to Napa Valley!!

Join us at your co-op's 78th Annual Meeting. Hear what we’ve been up to and where we’re headed. Bring your family for breakfast on us, the chance to win several, cool door prizes and the opportunity to vote in the director elections. The 2017 Annual Meeting will be taking place on April 8, 2017 at the Embassy Suites Hotel John Q. Hammons Conference Center in Loveland. Look for the Cooperative's Annual Report in the April Colorado Country Life and Poudre Valley Connections newsletter.
