VEC will host its 79th Annual Meeting of the Membership on May 6, 2017 at Jay Peak Resort. VEC’s annual meeting and election are great opportunities for members to exercise their voice. Since VEC is a cooperative, members elect local representatives to serve on the Board of Directors, which sets VEC policy.
