In Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative's 85 years of existence, it has been tradition for all members to have the opportunity to attend an Annual Meeting of Members in June. This event provides members with an opportunity to learn about the Co-op's projects of the past year, receive financial information of the Co-op, and interface directly with SREC's staff.
In 2022, Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative combined what worked from 2021's Online Meeting with new, member-focused ideas to create an exciting new Annual Meeting Event. The contents of our pre-recorded Online Meeting were added to this page on Monday, June 6th. Check out the "2022 Online Meeting" tab below to find an introductory video, our chairman's address, a financial report, the results of our 2022 board elections, and a six-part Q&A with our President & CEO Chris Reese.
On August 8th, SREC held its Member Appreciation Event. We had a tent at the NJ State Fair staffed all day by our employees, CEO, and board members. Members had the opportunity to meet with us and chat, and received a $10 bill credit and member appreciation gift for their participation. In addition, we held a prize drawing for members who visited throughout the day.
This webpage will be updated in 2023 with information on 2023's Annual Meeting.
