Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) is inviting members to its newest member outreach program, the Morning Buzz. In an effort to be accessible to its members and provide a convenient way for members to ask questions, the co-op will hold morning coffee meetings at local coffee shops throughout the service territory.
On Friday, April 22, the Morning Buzz will be held at Munson's Main Street Gallery, 260 W. Main Street, Cedaredge. This event takes place from 7 to 9 a.m. -- a time change from previous events which were scheduled for 6:45 to 8 a.m. The new time slot more closely matches member turnout and provides additional time to speak with co-op representatives. DMEA will provide complimentary coffee, specialty drinks and pastries.
"It's been reenergizing to visit with our members and talk about the issues they feel are important. Our Morning Buzz events are all about coming to our members and listening to what they have to say. So far, we have had great turnout and valuable conversations. We've also been able to connect with a portion of our membership that doesn't have the time in the evening to attend a meeting," said Kyle Martinez, DMEA District 2 board representative.
The Morning Buzz events are free to attend. DMEA's CEO, Jasen Bronec, and other co-op representatives will be available to answer questions and listen to suggestions. There will be no formal topic or presentation. Members are encouraged to ask questions on the topics of their choosing.
