Your Annual Meeting

As a member of Coast Electric, you are part of what makes this company successful. Cooperatives are led by members like you, and your feedback and your vote are important parts of what keeps our company moving forward!

We want all of our members to attend our Annual Meeting and Member Appreciation Night Thursday, Nov. 7, at our new location in the Hancock Performing Arts Center. But if you can't attend, we've got you covered. All you have to do is register your proxy online!

i am a member, we are a cooperative

Why register?

At Coast Electric, we don't have shareholders, we have members like you. As a member, you get to vote on the men and women who represent you on Coast Electric's board of directors. That vote takes place every year at our Annual Meeting. We know life is busy and you may not be able to attend each year. If you can't attend, you can register your proxy for the meeting. 

What is a proxy?

Registering your proxy allows you to assign someone who will be at the meeting to vote on your behalf. You can choose another member to vote for you or you can assign the board of directors to vote on your behalf. 

Who am I voting for?

Coast Electric serves Hancock, Harrison and Pearl River counties. There are three board positions in each county we serve. Each year, members vote for a board representative in one of these three positions. 

For more information about our election process, please read our bylaws

What are the benefits of registering or attending the meeting?

By attending or registering for our Annual Meeting, you are taking an active role in your cooperative. You have a vote and a voice in how your co-op does business. Attending or registering also give you the opportunity to win electricity credits of up to $1,000!
