Ozark Border Electric Cooperative's 2022 Annual Meeting will be held August 5, 2022.  

Ozark Border Electric Cooperative will hold a drive-thru annual meeting at its headquarters in Poplar Bluff, Missouri on Friday, August 5, 2022.  Registration and voting will take place from 7 am until 2 pm by means of electronic devices made available by OBEC.  While there will be no food, drinks or entertainment, members will receive their registration gift bags, register for the meeting, vote, and be included in a prize drawing to be held at the end of registration – all without having to leave their vehicles.  All members registering will also receive a $20 bill credit.  At 2 pm the prize drawings will be broadcast via Facebook live, and at 2:30 pm the business meeting will be conducted in the warehouse of the headquarters facility and will also be broadcast via Facebook live.

The maps below show the route traffic will take.  The west entrance will be dedicated to incoming annual meeting traffic and the east entrance will be for those members needing to conduct normal business at the drive-thru or front lobby.  Annual meeting traffic will flow to our warehouse bays then will proceed out the back of the property onto County Road 468 and go west to County Road 471 to circle back to Highway 67.

The Cooperative will mail an Annual Meeting registration form to each member on July 22, 2022. When you receive your registration form in the mail, be sure to save it and bring it to the drive-thru Annual Meeting on Friday, August 5, 2022, at the cooperative’s headquarters at 3281 South Westwood Blvd in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. The registration of members and voting will begin at 7:00 A.M. and will conclude at 2:00 P.M. The registration form allows each member to vote for Board of Director candidates and to be included in the drawing for attendance prizes. The Cooperative by-laws and Missouri statutes prohibit voting by proxy; therefore, you will need to attend in person to register and vote.
