2023 Annual Meeting A Success

On June 2 and 3, 5,013 members took part in Laurens Electric Cooperative’s drive-thru registration and voting for their board of directors.

Members elected Charles Adair to represent District 4; Marcus E. Cook to represent District 7; and Mitchell Powers to represent District 9.

Board Secretary/ Treasurer Mitchell Powers reported that the co-op’s finances remain strong, which allowed the board last year to approve the return of more than $1.7 million to members in the form of capital credits.

The co-op continues to experience solid growth in our service area as one of the fastest growing electric co-ops in the state. This leads to stability for the future for the co-op, and the community.

The business meeting and prize winners can be viewed on this page.

Thanks to the members of Laurens Electric who helped make our 2023 Annual Meeting a success.
