Each year, the CEO and board chair present the annual report and plans of the cooperative. A full annual report will be provided in advance of the meeting on BEC’s website. The annual meeting recording will be made available at a later date on BEC’s website and YouTube channel.
BEC will conduct the election for directors by mail, email and online for directors of districts 7, 8 and 9.
