Meet and greet with Co-op's new leader

Pahrump, NV (Nov. 19, 2018) — Valley Electric Association Chief Executive Officer Angela Evans will visit the communities in VEA territory to talk with members and answer questions about the Cooperative.

Evans plans to travel throughout the district starting in the first week of December in what is being billed as a “meet and greet” with Valley’s CEO.

“As Valley Electric Association’s new Chief Executive Officer, I consider it a privilege to serve our member-consumers, and I am anxious to meet with them,” said Evans. “Members likely are curious about the direction the Cooperative under new leadership is headed in. I’m looking forward to meeting members one on one and addressing their questions.”

Evans will be joined at each meeting by the VEA Board member from that area. “I encourage members to come meet with their District Director and me,” said Evans.

The meetings are expected to be similar to the annual District Meetings, which are conducted each March, but a little less formal.

The timing of the CEO announcement (Oct. 5), combined with the district meetings being four months out prompted the December meetings. “I think it is important to get face to face with members as soon as possible,” said Evans.

The following is the schedule for the meetings, all of which begin at 4 p.m.:

  • Wednesday, Dec. 5, Districts 1&6 (Pahrump), Valley Conference Center.
  • Monday, Dec. 10, District 5 (Sandy Valley), Sandy Valley Senior Center.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 11, District 2 (Amargosa Valley), Amargosa Valley Community Center.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 12, District 3 (Beatty), Beatty Community Center.
  • Friday, Dec. 14, District 4 (Fish Lake Valley), Dyer Community Center.

Members who are unable to attend a meeting in their district are welcome to attend a meeting in another district.
