Our Annual Meeting and Member Appreciation Week is a special time for Coastal Electric Cooperative members to stop by one of our office locations, have some facetime with Coastal Electric employees, hear from your co-op leadership and, perhaps most importantly, elect the directors who will make decisions on behalf of their fellow members.

Coastal Electric Cooperative employees work hard to make Member Appreciation Week as convenient, inviting, helpful, and relevant as possible to our members. We encourage you to stop by each year and exercise a few of the many rights you have as a member of a community-owned electric cooperative. We know the registration gifts and prize drawings are compelling reasons to participate, but there is so much more to this event.

Did you know Member Appreciation Week is an occasion to learn more about the issues affecting our community? All cooperatives serve both an economic and social purpose. While safe, reliable, and affordable electric power is crucial to our mission, improving the quality of life for all members is at the core of what we do every day.

During the annual meeting, you’ll get updates and behind-the-scenes insight from Coastal Electric Cooperative leadership about the topics that impact you and what we as a co-op can do to address our most pressing challenges. One of our key topics at each meeting is letting you know what we’ve been up to over the previous year and specifics about what the future holds.

Our country and community face many challenges – challenges we like to think of as opportunities for good. Taking hold of what could be will only happen if we come together. The good news is, as a cooperative, Coastal Electric Cooperative is positioned to bring together all members of the community for the common good as few other organizations can.


Thank you to all our members and community partners who engaged with us. We can’t wait to see everyone again next year. Please visit our social media channels for the most up-to-date information.

We look forward to greeting you face-to-face during our next Member Appreciation event and Annual Meeting in 2024!
