Annual Meeting Information


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the health and safety of our members and employees, Jackson EMC held an alternative Annual Meeting this year.


Members may view a video of the cooperative’s financial performance report, board chairman’s report and CEO’s report on our website,

The annual 2020 Report to Members was published in the September issue of JEMCO News, along with other information about the cooperative.


Voting for this year’s uncontested board election took place Tuesday through Thursday, September 15-17, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at each of the cooperative’s local offices. The purpose was to elect three directors and approve the minutes of the 2019 Annual Meeting.

Members could view the report of the nominating committee prior to registering.


Members were asked to bring a photo ID or a recent Jackson EMC bill statement to register to vote at one of the local offices. Jackson EMC’s local offices are located in Gainesville, Lawrenceville, Jefferson and Hull. Jackson EMC members could vote at any of the local offices. Signs at local offices directed members where to park and where to vote.

Jackson EMC provided a private space for members to vote and follow guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to reduce exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. To protect the confidentiality of voters, submitted ballots remained secure until the Annual Meeting concluded and ballots were counted by the Election & Credentials Committee. Results will be announced on October 15.


Jackson EMC’s 81st Annual Meeting was held September 15-17 in an alternative format, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, member registration and voting took place at each of Jackson EMC’s local offices for the board of directors election and to approve the minutes of the 2019 Annual Meeting.

Alton Thornton, Lynn Price and Shade Storey were elected to serve on the Jackson EMC Board of Directors for a three-year term. The minutes of the 2019 Annual Meeting were approved. Ballots were counted and the election results certified by the Credentials and Elections Committee as provided for in the cooperative’s bylaws.
