2019 NOVEC Annual Meeting
NOVEC’s annual meeting is set for Wednesday, September 18, at 6 p.m. The meeting will be held at Battlefield High School, 15000 Graduation Drive, Haymarket, VA 20169. Members will have the opportunity to see Co-op displays, eat a complimentary dinner, hear state-of-the-Cooperative reports, ask questions, and – most importantly – vote for one board director. Members have the duty and privilege of electing directors to represent them on the board. Co-op members who are unable to attend the meeting can vote by eProxy.
During the business portion of the meeting, Board Chairman Wade House and NOVEC President/CEO Stan Feuerberg will give state-of-the-Cooperative addresses, followed by a question and answer period.
If the school is closed for any reason, such as inclement weather, the meeting will be held on October 16.
After the meeting, each Co-op member will have the opportunity to win one of several door prizes.
In 2019, members will elect a director to represent District 2, which comprises most of NOVEC’s territory in Loudoun County. Any NOVEC member living in District 2 may run for the board. See page 28 in the NOVEC Bylaws for the territory map.
The Cooperative’s bylaws say in Article IV, Section 7: “Nominations for directors shall be made by any 15 or more members in writing over their signatures, said written nomination petitions to be delivered to the office of the president/CEO not less than 70 days prior to the next annual meeting. The secretary shall direct that the nomination petitions be published, online or in print, to the membership and that they be posted at the principal office of the Cooperative and shall mail with the notice of the meeting a statement of the number of directors to be elected and all the nominations made for said directorships. No additional nominations shall be made from the floor at the meeting of the members.”
Article IV, Section 5 says: “As herein specified, all nominees shall be actual bona fide residents and domiciliaries of the particular districts from which they are nominated. Further, no member shall be eligible to become or remain a director of the Cooperative who is not an actual bona fide resident and domiciliary in the area served by the Cooperative, or who is in any way employed by or financially interested in a competing enterprise of a business selling electric energy to the Cooperative. When a membership is held jointly by two persons, either one, but not both, may be elected a director.”
An independent firm will conduct background checks of all candidates and provide results to the NOVEC Board of Directors and the Nominees Evaluation Committee.
