Pedernales Electric Cooperative is inviting its members to a forum on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2010, to discuss the ongoing effort to consider revisions, updates and improvements to the Cooperative’s bylaws. The meeting also will include a discussion of a proposed, first-of-its-kind member bill of rights, to be included in the bylaws. The event will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at PEC’s E. Babe Smith Headquarters Building in Johnson City.
The event will include a presentation regarding the legal and policy considerations that arise from possible revisions to the bylaws. PEC’s bylaws establish rules for Board conduct and for membership in the Cooperative, providing guidelines on a wide range of topics, including meetings, Board elections and qualifications for membership. The member bill of rights could potentially establish a list of core member rights that could not be changed without a member vote.
Members at the forum will have the opportunity to make comments and fill out a feedback form. PEC’s Board will take that feedback into account as it considers what changes to implement. PEC encourages input from members prior to the forum as well. Members may e-mail suggestions or comments to Bylaws@peci.com, or mail them to: Pedernales Electric Cooperative, Inc., Governance, Bylaws and Legal Committee, P.O. Box 1, Johnson City, Texas 78636-0001
