Southern Coloradoan’s helped break an 82-year-long record on Saturday, September 19. A record number 1,095 co-op members registered for San Isabel Electric’s first-ever online meeting, the highest registration in the co-op’s 82-year history.

The meeting took place on the traditional third Saturday of September. The co-op also received a record number of 63 questions and was completed in record time, in just 27 minutes.

Annual meeting registration history by district:

Holding the meeting online did eliminate the opportunity to attend for some members who have historically participated in person. Hosting the meeting online gave members who cannot travel the distance, or feel it’s too far, a new opportunity to participate.

Of the 1,095 that registered, 175 people signed into the online annual meeting.

“We work to keep the lights on every day. It’s not every day that we set up production studio lights and ask members to stare at us on a screen for nearly a half hour in the middle of the afternoon on a gorgeous Saturday. But we did it, and so did you. People are interested in the electric cooperative and we gave them the opportunity to participate,” San Isabel Electric General Manager Reg Rudolph said.

“There’s usually a lot of good college football on the day of the annual meeting. My husband and I stopped coming years ago. Being able to attend online was great. We live in Forbes Park and it takes about an hour to get there and back. It only took up a half-hour instead of taking up a whole day,” said Carol McElmurray.
