Annual Meeting Postponed

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and in accordance with the provisions of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois Plan, which limits public gatherings of more than 10 individuals in Phase 3 and 50

individuals in Phase 4, the Board of Trustees has made the decision to postpone the Annual Meeting of SouthEastern Illinois Electric Cooperative beyond the scheduled date of August 4, 2020 at Little Chapel Church.

It is unknown at this time when large gatherings will be considered safe and allowed to resume.Therefore, no date has been set to reschedule the meeting. We realize that many members look forward to the cooperative’s annual meeting each year in August, but this year we are facing concerns about the health effects of the new coronavirus, COVID-19. The Annual Meeting typically draws 1,500 to 1,800 people. The safety of our cooperative members, employees and trustees is the most important thing, and we believe the safest thing to do at this time is postpone the meeting.

See you next month and as always, “We’ll keep the lights on for you.”
