Celebrating their 75th annual meeting, Otero County Electric invited its membership to join them at Cloudcroft high school in Cloudcroft, N.M. this past Saturday, August 2. The meeting was attended by over 400 member-owners with the board and staff presenting reports on the financial status of the co-op and a video featuring members reminiscing when the lights first came on at their homes and ranches.
Jennifer Goss, senior vice president, member relations, presented on the association’s status, and its recent implementation of the relationship manager program. Kevin Groenewold, executive vice president and general manager of the New Mexico Rural Electric Cooperative Assn. also spoke on local and national legislative issues.
Making an appearance during registration and performing a skit with Jon Beyer, member relations manager, Power shook hands and bumped fists with Otero County member-owners while passing along the message about the work that power does in people’s everyday lives. Power also met NRECA mascots, LED Lucy and CFL Charlie, and the local troop of Boy Scouts who were helping logistically with the annual meeting.
