Mountain View Electric Association, Inc.


MVEA Annual Meeting

75th Logo Color MVEA

You get more power from an electric co-op.  As a member/owner of MVEA, you have a lot of power. You can vote for your board of directors and you can make your opinions heard at annual meetings because you are the owner. And that’s a huge advantage over the big corporate power companies. Their customers have no say in the management of the company, no vote for the board of directors and no stake in the power company’s future. That’s why co-ops work so well throughout America. Because when people want power, we deliver.

Please join us at our 75th Annual Meeting of Members at Falcon High School on June 2, 2016, commencing at 7 p.m. for the following purposes:

  • To elect 2 directors for the Association – one from District 3 and one from District 5.
  • To conduct such other business as may properly come before the meeting.

As stated in the MVEA By-laws, Article III., Section 2., “The person elected will be elected for a term to expire at the third Annual Meeting of Members after their election or until their successors are elected and qualified.”
