What’s in it for me?

You may think attending your co-op’s annual meeting has no benefit, however Illinois’ electric cooperatives exist to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy to its consumer-members (that’s you!). Cooperatives enrich the lives of their members and serve the long-term interests of the local community. So, what’s in it for you?

  • As a member of the community, your perspective is valuable. Share it with your co-op to better inform their decisions for the future.
  • Annual meeting is the time to vote for new board members to represent you. Board members are local consumers and members of the community, just like you.
  • The health of your co-op and the well-being of your community are closely intertwined.
  • Your dollars are reinvested locally into improvements that impact the reliability and affordability of your energy.
