Did you know that you are a member, not a customer, of this cooperative? PVREA is democratically owned by you, our member. 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. As a member of this cooperative, the Annual Meeting is one of many opportunities to take advantage of your membership, and have some fun with fellow members.
The 2018 Annual Meeting was held on April 7, 2018 at the Embassy Suites in Loveland.
Four Board of Director positions were up for election in 2018: one in Boulder County and three in Larimer County. The membership elected incumbent Ron Sutherland to serve a four-year term in Boulder County. Bryan D. Ehrlich is welcomed as a new board member to serve a four-year term in Larimer County. Incumbent James F. Fender was reelected to serve a three-year term in Larimer County; incumbent Rick Johnson was reelected to serve a four-year term in Larimer County.
“The Annual Meeting is our main event in which we look forward to every year. We enjoy engaging with our members, sharing the successes and challenges of our co-op and reporting on what we’re planning for the future that will best serve the membership.” PVREA President and CEO Jeff Wadsworth commented, “We were pleased to have so many members attend and engage with us.”
The membership also enjoyed various community booths, bucket truck rides, electrical safety demonstrations, breakfast and entertainment. PVREA President and CEO Wadsworth spoke about the PVREA’s focus on the future regarding affordable rates, reliability, renewable energy, and upcoming, new programs. PVREA Board Chair Rick Johnson presented on PVREA’s recent micro hydropower project near Kersey. Members also received reports from the Colorado Rural Electric Association, PVREA’s trade association, and Tri-State Generation and Transmission, PVREA’s wholesale power supplier.
