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.
2020 Election and Voting Information
Due to COVID-19, attendance at this year's annual meeting may not provide the quorum required to approve the 2019 annual meeting minutes. View the minutes below for approval on the 2020 Election Ballot.
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
District Meetings were held June 23, 24, and 25 in the Community Room at Beltrami Electric Cooperative.
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.
In light of the Beltrami County Agricultural Association postponing the 2020 Beltrami County Fair, Beltrami Electric’s board of directors has decided to hold a small official business meeting at its headquarters facility on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, beginning at 5pm. We continue to work through the details, but the meeting will likely include only the required business elements with no meal, entertainment or prizes. While we were looking forward to conducting our annual meeting in conjunction with the Beltrami County Fair, we understand and support their decision. Further details will be communicated in the August newsletter/2019 Annual Report and through our social media sites.
