2021 Coastal Electric Cooperative Annual Meeting of Members

For the health and safety of everyone involved, this year’s Annual Meeting on May 27th at 10:00 a.m. will not be a public event and lunch as in the past. Instead, only the required business session will be held from our headquarters office with only officers and board members in attendance. That meeting will be live-streamed for the public and members to view.

Coastal Electric Cooperative members, stop by the Coastal Electric Cooperative Midway or Richmond Hill office during Member Appreciation Days May 24-26 to pick up a 38-piece Stanley Home Project Hand Tools Set and register to win $1,000! Be sure to bring the preprinted perforated address card from the cover of the May issue of Georgia Magazine with you to register.

During Member Appreciation Days, Coastal Electric members can also pre-register for the virtual annual meeting and vote for their co-op board of directors.



The winner will be announced during the live stream broadcast of the Annual Meeting May 27th. You can watch the broadcast on Facebook or our YouTube Channel.

Find the latest details on our social media platforms and in the May edition of Georgia Magazine.
