Co-op Annual Meeting
Scholarships given away to members
Our 2024 Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2024.
The 86th annual meeting of cooperative members will be held on Thursday, April 25th to discuss important policy and leadership issues and review the successes of 2023. All customers of Choptank Electric Cooperative are members and are entitled to vote and participate in discussions about how our electric distribution company functions here on the Eastern Shore.
The annual meeting and dinner will be held at The Fountains Wedding & Conference Center at 1800 Sweetbay Drive in Salisbury, Maryland. Doors will open at 4:30pm for members to register, visit with staff and vendors and enjoy dinner. The business portion of the annual meeting will begin at 6:00pm with President and CEO Mike Malandro reporting on the Co-op business over the last 12 months. Three Board members will be standing for re-election during the 2024 meeting.
• Bob Arnold, representing Queen Anne’s County
• Kristen Nickerson, representing Kent County
• Doug Scott, representing Talbot County
Biographical information about each Director candidate is posted online at www.choptankelectric.coop and is displayed in the lobby of the headquarters office in Denton. Petitions for nomination were submitted, reviewed and approved by the Credentials and Elections Committee. Because there is only one approved Director candidate for each district, the Committee has invoked Bylaws section 4.06(b). This section states that in the event of an uncontested election, Choptank Electric Cooperative may forego the balloting process. A final vote to elect Directors will occur during the annual meeting. This saves the Cooperative and its members thousands of dollars in the printing and mailing of ballots and the hiring of a voting service provider.
Check back in March for registration information and opportunities to apply for scholarships and bill credits at the meeting.
