About our Annual Meeting

San Miguel Power's Annual Meeting of Members is typically held in early June. This is one of the most important events for all SMPA members to attend. It is an opportunity for members of the cooperative to gather and review the activities of the association over the past year. Members whose districts are in the rotation for an election will also vote for their director representatives, pose questions and suggestions to the Board of Directors and General Manager, and learn about the co-op's goals for the future.

The board has set the official date and location for the 2017 Annual Meeting as June 8th at the SMPA Ridgway Office.  Mail-in ballots are due the day before the Annual Meeting, June 7.  Members may also vote in person during the voting period on the day of the Annual Meeting.
