77th Annual Meeting
On May 16th, 2019, Sho-Me Power hosted its 77th Annual Meeting of the Members. The meeting was a success, offering an insightful look back at the building of Sho-Me’s legacy and a look forward at improvements that will shape that legacy in years to come. Members were given detailed updates on the past year from Sho-Me’s power supplier, Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. David Tudor, Roger Clark, Joe Wilkinson, Sean Wright, Dave McNabb, and Brian Prestwood did a fantastic job of showcasing “The Associated Advantage” to the Members present.
“Electric co-ops are essential to the economic well-being of the communities they serve, providing good jobs, keeping the lights on, and helping to create a positive environment for families, farms and businesses to thrive.”
Jim Matheson, CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)
