At Glades Electric Cooperative, we value the safety of our members and employees and strive to provide exceptional service. With those values as our guide, we have decided it is in the best interest of our members, employees, guests, and communities to cancel our Annual Meeting scheduled for Saturday, March 21st.
Given that Governor Ron DeSantis has declared a public health emergency in Florida due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), which the World Health Organization has now declared a pandemic, we aim to help mitigate potential exposure and spread of the virus through our communities.
Glades Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting, held at Moore Haven Middle-High School, is a gathering of over 500 members and guests from the many communities in our service area. Since this event has the potential to facilitate the spread of the virus, we have canceled the meeting to avoid contributing to the potential health risk to our members, employees, guests, and greater communities.
Unfinished business scheduled for the 2020 Annual Meeting will be completed at the 2021 Annual Meeting. We look forward to welcoming members and guests to the celebration of our 75th/76th Annual Meeting next year.
