BULLHEAD CITY, AZ – On Thursday, September 21, Mohave Electric Cooperative, Inc. held
its Annual Meeting at the Anderson Auto Group Fieldhouse. The district and annual meetings
were attended by 360 Cooperative members collectively, as well as many special guests. This
year’s annual meeting attendees received a Ryobi, cordless, bucket-top misting fan kit and some
lucky winners won great door prizes and power credits.
The annual event, as mandated by the Cooperative’s bylaws, provided an opportunity to discuss
several items from the past year as well as looking forward to the future. Members entered the
Fieldhouse, registered, received their complimentary meals, and visited informational tables for
TWN Communications, Arizona Generation & Transmission Cooperatives (AzG&T) and
Western Governors University Arizona (WGU) – MEC’s newest program supporting bachelor’s
and master’s degrees in education, business, IT, and healthcare with access to scholarship
opportunities.
MEC also had tables staffed with MEC employees who provided information on the UAV Drone
Program, SmartHub® app, Operation Cool Shade and the Outage Management System.
Board President Joe Anderson introduced the nine, member-elected Directors that comprise
Mohave Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors, along with Russell Smolden, CEO of B3
Strategies; Patrick Ledger, CEO of AzG&T; Grand Canyon State Electric Cooperative
Association (GCSECA) CEO Dave Lock; CoBank, and River Fund.
MEC also hosted three district meetings earlier in the week. Members in attendance
recommended that Jose Solar (District 2) and Joe Anderson, Board President (District 3)
continue representing members for a three-year term. Members in attendance, at the District 1
meeting, held a quorum and voted in a new representative.
“I’d like to take this time to thank Cynthia Christy, for serving as District 1 Board Director since
2013. We appreciate your many years of dedication and service to our members,” stated CEO
Tyler Carlson.
District 1’s new representative, Tracy Weisz has been a full-time resident of the area since 1994
and raised her family here. Weisz became office manager for a multi-million dollar developer
and construction company in 1996. In 2004, she obtained her Arizona Real Estate license and is

still active today. Tracy will serve a three-year term as Board Director District 1. MEC looks
forward to having her represent our members.
“I’d like to congratulate these three board members who, along with the rest of the board of
directors, work tirelessly to help the cooperative. We are happy to have them continue in their
roles.
If you haven’t made it out to MEC’s Annual Meeting, I encourage you to come out next year and
hear what’s going on,” said CEO Tyler Carlson.

Founded in 1946, Mohave Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit utility providing reliable, cost-
effective power to 36,700 members, 43,500 meters, with more than 1,570 miles of line spanning
