The Annual Member Meeting is held on the fourth Saturday of September each year. As owners of the cooperative, all members are invited and encouraged to attend the meeting and to vote in the Board of Directors Election that precedes it. .
The purposes of the meeting are to:
- Elect directors of the cooperative.
- Consider reports of the affairs of the cooperative
- Transact any other business which may properly come before the meeting.
Attending the Annual Meeting is a great way for SPEC members to make their voice heard as well as an opportunity to get up-to-date information on the well-being of the cooperative. As an added benefit, Christus Spohn Health Services is often invited to conduct a health fair for our members before the meeting takes place. And after the meeting, many of SPEC's attendees walk away with door prizes donated from generous sponsors.
During the meeting, the results of the board of director’s election will be announced. We encourage you to make your voice heard by casting a ballot in this election. You will receive your ballots the first week of September. For your convenience, you can vote by mail or online.
