Annual Meeting of Members

2021 Annual Meeting Ad_web

Each year Benton REA hosts a meeting of the members including an appreciation lunch, door prizes and an opportunity for you to meet your co-op employees and trustees. In addition to these activities, members in voting districts have the opportunity to vote for the trustee who will represent them on the board. Because Benton REA is a member-owned cooperative, you have a say in how your cooperative is run.

The DRIVE IN 84th Benton REA Annual Meeting of Members will be held September 18, 2021, at the Red Mountain Event Center in West Richland (8280 W. Van Giesen St.). Registration begins at 9:45 a.m. The business meeting begins at 10:30 a.m.

As a cooperative, Benton REA is required to hold an annual meeting of the Benton REA members. With the rising number of COVID-19 patients admitted to our local hospitals, we believe a drive-in event is safest for our members and employees.

Join us for a modified version of your annual meeting without leaving your vehicle. $4,400 in prizes and bill credits will be given away. Enjoy a free boxed lunch and drink.
