The 27th Annual Meeting of the Members of East-Central Iowa REC was held virtually on June 16! The meeting was recorded—click here to listen to the proceedings.
A primary piece of the Annual Meeting is the Board election. This year, members could vote by mail-in ballot, or they could vote online through our website or SmartHub. Julie Kester (District 2), Brian McNulty (District 3), and Gary McKenna (District 4) were re-elected to serve another three-year term on the Board of Directors.
A Board reorganization meeting followed the election. Re-elected to office were Steve Rau, president; Jeff Elliott, vice president; Ryan Kress, secretary/treasurer; and Julie Kester, assistant secretary/treasurer.
This year’s theme—Powering Ahead for You—was fitting for ECI REC. We have always striven to utilize innovative and forward-thinking opportunities to achieve what is in the best interest of you, our membership.
