2023 Annual Meeting of Members – so much fun!
Members, staff and guests all told the same story of the 2023 Annual Meeting of Members of Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative, Inc., held Sunday, August 20, 2023 – it was a great time!
More than 2,000 people joined us at La Luz Campground for the annual meeting, which might be a record!
Of those 2,000-plus more than 700 members registered, allowing us to make quorum!
Members used their power to vote and approved proposed updates to eight bylaws. Updating our bylaws is essential to helping JMEC bring its governance guidance to current best practices standards.
JMEC welcomed new board of trustees members Danny Velarde, representing District 5, Ward A, and Henry Roybal, representing District 6, Ward B and gave our sincere thanks and appreciation to outgoing trustees Bruce Duran and Stanley Crawford.
We appreciate member participation in the business portion of the meeting – a good time to see JMEC trustees and hear in person updates on the many programs underway to improve the operations of the cooperative and electrical service throughout all our service territory.
Members and their families enjoyed Rudy’s BBQ, Lovin Oven cookies and the music of Severo y Grupo Fuego – so good! Kids had fun at the face painting, bounce house, pole climbing demonstrations and giveaways. Everybody looked forward to their chance to win one of the amazing door prizes and grand prizes. Congrats to Sixto Sandoval, winner of the Chevy Malibu; Debra Garcia and Mary Lasiewicki, winners of the Polaris 4X4s; and Ralph Garcia and George Sandoval, winners of the big flatscreen TVs.
Just being together, enjoying each other, reminds us that being a member of an electric cooperative is all about community.
