Cooperatives Pushing for Exemption to Hold Virtual Meetings
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/18/2021

Cooperative Network is working with the Wisconsin Electric Cooperative Association in pushing legislation that will allow for virtual annual meetings during periods of emergency, such as the current pandemic.

Authored by State Senators Patrick Testin of Stevens Point and Janis Ringhand from Evansville, the newly proposed bill allows a cooperative to hold an annual member meeting or special member meeting by means of remote participation. If certain conditions are satisfied, members participating in a member meeting by means of remote communication are considered to be present in person, and their votes cast by electronic means are considered as votes at the member meeting.

Under current law, unless the bylaws provide otherwise, member meetings must be held at the cooperative's principal office or another place chosen by the group's board of directors.
