A delicious meal, a gift for registered members, special demonstrations and displays, and a chance to win cash, free electricity and a pickup truck – that’s what is in store for the CCEC Annual Meeting of the Membership on May 4 at Glad Tidings Church in Morehead City.

Doors open at 5 p.m., and the first 600 members to register will receive a free gift. All co-op members who attend and register will get a ticket for drawings at the close of the meeting. Those drawings include cash prizes, up to $1,000 in free electricity (for bills mailed July through December 2023) and a Ford F-150 truck retired from the cooperative's fleet.

Attendees can learn more about the Carteret-Craven Electric Foundation and Operation RoundUP® program, energy safety and CCEC energy saving programs like Connect to Save. The co-op’s Relay for Life team will hold a 50-50 raffle and all proceeds will benefit the local American Cancer Society.

Entertainment by talented students from Broad Creek Middle School’s Jazz Band and Croatan High School Chorus will be featured in the church sanctuary just prior to the opening of the business meeting.

In addition to those activities, co-op members will learn about the organization's operations over the past year, plans for the future, and more.

The terms for directors from Districts 6, 7 and 9 expire this year. All three candidates were unopposed. They are: District 6 Director Doug Fulcher, District 7 Director Anthony Nelson and District 9 Director Alvin West.

“We encourage members to attend and learn more about their cooperative,” said CCEC Communications Director Melissa Glenn. “After all, our co-op members are actually the owners of the organization, and they have a say in what we do.”
