ANNUAL & DISTRICT MEETINGS
Each year, Beltrami Electric Cooperative hosts district meetings and an annual meeting for the cooperative membership. It is an opportunity for members to take part in the business meeting and connect with cooperative employees, directors and fellow members. Come to the annual meeting for a free meal, door prizes and the opportunity to learn more about your cooperative.
2020 District Meetings
District meetings are held each year in districts whose directors are either up for re-election. Nominations from each district to Beltrami Electric's board of directors will be accepted at the district meetings. NOTE: Members seeking to run for the Board of Directors shall, not less than five (5) business days prior to the district meeting in which there is a director election, submit to the corporate office a completed candidate packet, as provided by the Cooperative, by which the Cooperative will verify said member's qualifications to be an eligible candidate for the director position, per the Cooperative's Bylaws. The top two candidates receiving the greatest number of votes shall appear on the ballot for the entire membership to vote upon.
Each District Meeting begins at 7:00 pm. Other agenda items include management and staff reports and any other business that may properly come before the meeting. Coffee and cookies will be service and members may register to win a door prize.

2020 Annual Meeting
Every year, Beltrami Electric Cooperative conducts its members' meeting for the purpose of electing directors, passing upon reports covering the previous fiscal year, and transacting such other business as may come before the meeting.
Notification of the annual members' meeting will be published in the Northern Lights and local newspapers at least two (2) weeks before the date of the meeting.
The Cooperative's 80th annual meeting will be held Wednesday, August 12, at the Beltrami County Fairgrounds in conjunction with the Beltrami County Fair. One of your cooperative's strategic initiatives is to increase positive member engagement and what better place to engage our members than at the county fair. We are delighted to partner with the Beltrami County Fair Board to host our annual meeting.
Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 12. We hope to see you at the fair!
