Your HEMC Ballot Information:
Haywood EMC’s 2022 Director Election will be held at its Annual Meeting on August 4 at 7pm at our Waynesville HQ (376 Grindstone Rd. Waynesville NC 28785). As an incentive for members to vote in this year’s uncontested election, Haywood EMC plans to have a random drawing from all proxy ballots signed and returned.
One $100, two $75, two $50, and two $25 cash drawings for a total of $400 will be given away. All ballots received on or before 5 p.m., July 15, will go into a drawing for $100; all ballots received on or before 5 p.m., July 22, will be in all remaining drawings. The $100 drawing will be Monday, July 18, with winner notified that day.
All remaining drawings will take place on Monday, July 25, and Haywood EMC will attempt to notify winners by noon on Tuesday, July 26. Winners will also be announced in Haywood EMC’s newsletter in the September issue of Carolina Country magazine. Even though Haywood EMC does not have a contested director election this year, the co-op urges you to mark the enclosed Proxy Ballot as it will assist in establishing a quorum for this year’s annual business meeting.
The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on August 4 at the co-op’s Waynesville main office. Three candidates are seeking re-election to three-year terms on the Haywood EMC board. All HEMC members may vote regardless of where you live. You may direct the HEMC Proxy Manager to cast your vote per the enclosed authorization. Please vote for one candidate in each Directorate District. Also, the Proxy Ballot must be signed by the HEMC member as labeled on this magazine’s cover to count in establishing a quorum for the annual business meeting, as well as to be entered in the drawings.
