Words from the Board President

James Weimer, President Dear Member,

As a member-owned cooperative, UDWI REMC is committed to working proactively on behalf of the membership, keeping its best interests in mind. The cooperative makes daily operation decisions with the seven cooperative principles as the driving force.  These principles form the foundation of our commitment to the members.

In keeping the best interest of the member at heart, your cooperative has actively searched for ways to "tighten the belt." By implementing cost-cutting measures, reductions were made to the member bill tracker and the capital budget. Then, in March, the Board of Directors, along with management staff, announced the largest reduction in the history of UDWI. Our projected net margins for 2017 were reduced by a total of $2.5 million, compared to 2016 margins, meaning more money in the member-owners’ pockets!

Without you, these successes would not have been possible. It is our pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to the future. Your local cooperative will remain dedicated to providing safe, reliable, and affordable electricity to you, the member-owners. 

Ronald Thompson

UDWI REMC Board President
