GONZALES -- This year’s GVEC annual meeting was held June 22 in the Gonzales High School Special Events Center. Either present or by proxy, 1,276 GVEC members were represented at the meeting.
While waiting for the business meeting to start, GVEC members enjoyed refreshments and chili dogs, and listened to music performed by “The O’Neal Brothers Band.” Members also had an opportunity to browse exhibit booths for GVEC subsidiaries, GVEC Home, and GVEC.net.
Four incumbent directors were elected to a three-year term on the GVEC board of directors. Henry C. Schmidt Jr. of Gonzales will serve as director of District 3; Emmett Engelke of New Braunfels will serve as director of District 6; Dr. Tom DeKunder of Schertz will serve as director of District 9; and David Warzecha of Cuero will serve as director of District 11.
Topics of discussion included GVEC’s new online member services of online live chat, 24/7 real-time outage information, and a mobile website; the Eagle Ford Shale and its positive effect on electric service in the eastern end of the GVEC service territory; steps taken to maintain electric system reliability; and the 2011 financial report.
A special part of the evening’s program was the presentation of the Public Service Award. It was awarded to the family of the late Mayor Hal Baldwin of Schertz in recognition of his 29 years of dedicated public service to the city of Schertz.
The award was accepted by the late mayor’s wife, Barbara Baldwin, and daughter, Lynn Cockrum.
“Mayor Baldwin was a business partner and supporter for many years, but more importantly, he was a great friend to GVEC,” said GVEC General Manager and CEO Darren Schauer. “He will be forever remembered for his leadership and his many contributions to the Schertz community.”
