From the Top with CEO Patrick Grace

I couldn’t be happier to announce that, after two years of canceled plans, our Annual Meeting and Member Appreciation Night is making its comeback in a few short months. Mark your calendars for Friday, Aug. 5, 2022, for a night of entertainment, prizes and family fun at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman.

We are excited to be able to share an evening with you again after a long break, and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how we’ve grown and evolved since we last met in 2019. The good news is everything should look the same as past Annual Meetings — our caterer will be back with some delicious barbecue, and we’ll have prizes, the Kids’ Zone, Innovation Expo, entertainment, the $1,000 grand prize and everything else you’ve become accustomed to over the years.

For those who are newer to OEC, we hope you will plan on joining us Aug. 5 to fully experience what it means to be a co-op member. From an area dedicated to kids’ activities and local robotics team demonstrations, to the Luck of the Draw $1,000 scholarship giveaways and more, we have fun lined up for the whole family.

Prior to the Annual Meeting and Member Appreciation Night, we will hold meetings in Districts 3, 5 and 7. We meet at those District Meetings in July with the purpose of electing board trustees to represent members in those districts. Members in those districts will receive special invitations in the weeks to come.

On another note, summer is upon us, and I encourage you to read about our three residential rate options on page 4. Now is the perfect time to switch rates (if you haven’t already switched within the last 12 months). You can view more information and switch rates by visiting Stay safe this month, and we will see you in August.
