In his remarks, Board President Joel Cravens commented, “Regrettably, we made the difficult decision to close our Annual Meeting to the public again this year. As much as we would like to meet with our members face-to-face, rising health concerns in our region required the move to a Virtual meeting for the safety of our employees and members.”

District number 1 Brenda Nutter 1,120
Douglas Baker 429
District number 2 Darrel Bishop 993

District number 3 Randall Little 1,031

During the virtual meeting, members heard reports from Board President Joel Cravens, Board Treasurer Melvin Hoffman, CEO/General Manager Marc Roecker, and Chairman of the Committee on Nominations Mary Jo Tannehill.
At the conclusion of the meeting, 25 members drawn from those that voted were announced. The $100 checks for the winners will be mailed during the first week of September.
