Co-op Annual Meeting
Scholarships given away to members
Traditionally, the Annual Meeting is not only a chance to visit with members from around the Eastern Shore, but it is also a great opportunity for members to learn about programs offered by Choptank Electric Cooperative and get to know your Co-op staff. The Annual Meeting makes it possible to gather feedback from our members by providing a forum where everyone can share how we can better serve them and their families.
The 2022 Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 28, 2022. The business meeting will start at 6:00 p.m. Doors open at 4:30pm and will enjoy informational videos and Co-op highlights. Members who register and include their account number are eligible to win bill credit door prizes at the end of the meeting.
