During the business session the membership will hear reports of officers, directors, and committees; elect directors whose seats are not contested; receive the report of the Credentials and Election Committee on the election of any directors whose seats are contested; and conduct all other business that may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment or adjournments thereof. The three candidates nominated by the Committee on Nominations for terms on the board of directors are Dr. Cecil O. Myers, Sumter County; David A. Barrett, Stewart/Quitman counties; and Bob Jernigan, Marion County.
Following the business session, more than 40 prizes will be given away, including a $2,000 gift certificate that can be used to purchase items from Sumter EMC’s appliance center, and a 42-inch Toshiba color television.
