The Contact Group Facilitates JCREMC Virtual Annual Meeting

The Contact Group Provides Unique Solutions for Internal and External Communications

(VIRGINIA BEACH, VA) –April 21, 2021—The Contact Group, the leader in innovative phone-based and online communications solutions, facilitated a virtual annual meeting for JCREMC’s member-consumers on April 17.

JCREMC is an Indiana-based electric cooperative that supplies service to more than 26,000 meters in Johnson, Morgan, Shelby, and Brown counties. As a cooperative electric utility, its consumers are also members and owners.

The virtual Annual Meeting—attended by member-consumers—featured the election results, updates on JCREMC business affairs, prize drawings, and an announcement of scholarship winners. Attending was easy. Members who registered in advance received a phone call as the meeting began; they participated via the phone call and/or on the Annual Meeting Web page, where the meeting was live-streamed. They also were able to view livestream on JCREMC’s Facebook page or by calling (833) 998-1729 toll-free.

The virtual meeting format was new for JCREMC, which typically hosts an in-person event each spring. The change for 2021 was made in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We want to meet our members where they are, and this year we made that a reality as our annual meeting was live-streamed into their homes,” says JCREMC CEO John Sturm. “Our virtual Annual Meeting was the best way to conduct important cooperative business while keeping everyone safe.”

David Costenbader, Founder and CEO of The Contact Group, said, “Our TOTAL Teleconference platform is a productive and cost-effective alternative for a speaker or a panel of speakers to address large groups of people. JCREMC was able to allow members to participate while keeping them safe. We’ve been in this space for more than a decade, evolving with the technology. We also bring deep experience for registration, pre- and post-call follow up and reporting.”

The Contact Group has seen major success in the political, government and non-profit sectors. The communications company also has hosted events for hospitality associations and has plans for homeowners’ association meetings as well.
