Do We Owe You Money? 2015 Capital Credits

Can you help us locate former members with Unclaimed Capital Credits?

Can you help us locate former members with Unclaimed Capital Credits?

One of the many benefits of owning your electric cooperative is capital credits.  Each year, the KEA Board of Directors reviews the Cooperative’s cash level and makes a determination of capital credits to retire back to the membership based on the Cooperative’s financial condition.  KEA retired 2.36% of the total unretired capital credits on file in 2015  – a total of one million dollars in capital credits to our cooperative members!

To date, some of our former members have not cashed or claimed the capital credit checks mailed to them at their last known address in December, 2015.  A listing of these people is posted on our website for the next six months.  If you keep in touch with any of these friends and neighbors, please contact them and ask that they give Member Services a call at 486.7701 to update their current address and receive their capital credits.  Any money that remains unclaimed after the six months of posting has been completed will revert back to KEA.

Six directors from KEA have attained their Director Gold credential from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).

In order to earn the credential, Chairman Davidson (not pictured), Vice Chairman Ron Acarregui, Secretary/Treasurer Stosh Anderson, Director Mike Brechan, Director Gordon Gould, and Director Cecil Ranney had to complete a core set of five courses followed by a variety of elective courses in topics ranging from finance to technology and then commit to a continuing education requirement throughout their service on the co-op board.

Today’s electric utility environment imposes new demands on electric cooperative directors, particularly increased knowledge of changes in the electric utility business, new governance skills and a working knowledge of the cooperative principles. The Director Gold credential is offered by NRECA to help directors comply with laws, understand evolving technologies, and to apply leading governance practices. The KEA Board of Directors considers it vital to be on top of their continuing education in order to better serve our members and the community.

 

 

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association is the national service organization that represents the nation’s more than 900 private, not-for-profit, and consumer-owned electric cooperatives, which provide service to 42 million people in 47 states.
