JULY 18, 2016

Dear Cooperative Member,

I am pleased to announce that the new Cooperative headquarter facility will be complete in July 2016 at which time the Cooperative will be moving from the existing Eldorado location to our new location south of Route 13, six miles west of Harrisburg.  Our office at the Eldorado location will close at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, July 15th and will re-open at our new headquarter location at 100 Cooperative Way, Carrier Mills on Monday, July 18th at 8:00 a.m.

An open house will be planned later this year for members to come and view the new facility.  We will inform members of the date and time of the open house in the manager’s article of the Illinois Country Living Magazine.

We are excited to serve you at our new location and we look forward to providing you, as Cooperative members, with quality, affordable service for many years to come.

Sincerely,

SOUTHEASTERN ILLINOIS ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC.

SPRINGFIELD – Sen. Gary Forby and Rep. John Bradley met with students representing SouthEastern Illinois Electric Cooperative, Inc. during the Illinois Electric and Telephone Cooperatives Youth Day on Wednesday, April 2 in Springfield. More than 200 students from downstate Illinois had an opportunity to visit the State Capitol, view state government in action and question their legislators on key issues. They also were invited into the office of Secretary of State Jesse White.

During breakfast, Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon addressed students and chaperones and challenged them to take an interest in the political process and encouraged them to talk to their state senators and representatives about issues that interest them. While in Springfield, the students also visited the Illinois State Museum, Old State Capitol and Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum.
