Your Voice in the Cooperative

Member participation is essential to the success of this cooperative. If you have a complaint, concern, compliment, idea or suggestion for Southwestern Electric Cooperative leadership, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Southwestern Electric’s CEO and staff shall see that every effort is made to satisfy the needs and concerns of its members. If a member has an issue or concern that has not been resolved through the cooperative’s CEO or staff, the member may request to address the board of directors. The member shall be heard at the next regular board meeting.

The cooperative holds an Annual Meeting of Members, which is the most important event of the year for your member-owned utility. At the Annual Meeting, which is traditionally held on the first Saturday after Labor Day, members participate in the operation of their cooperative through:

  • The election of directors;
  • Voting on bylaw amendments (when applicable); and
  • Providing a voice and a vote in any other business that is important to the cooperative’s operation.
