Sumter EMC Bill Assistance Options
Sumter EMC drive-throughs and offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. As of July 1, 2020, Sumter EMC resumed disconnects for nonpayment. While the Cooperative cannot dismiss members of their obligation to pay for their energy used, we can offer some payment options to give some relief during this difficult time. <<Click here for more information on how Sumter EMC is here to help>>
Sumter EMC Recesses Annual Meeting Until August 29, 2020
Out of an abundance of concern for the safety and health of our members, employees and the general public, Sumter EMC recessed its Annual Meeting to late summer. The meeting, originally scheduled for June 13th, has been recessed and will be reconvened on August 29th, 2020 so the Cooperative can conduct its annual business, including elections of directors. “It is of utmost importance that any gathering or meeting of members be conducted in a healthy environment and safe manner. We know that many Sumter EMC Members look forward to the Annual Meeting each year, and we look forward to seeing the Members of our electric cooperative family on August 29th and thanking them for their continued support of the co-op.” said Rene Smith, President/CEO of Sumter EMC.
The drive-in Annual Meeting will be held on the campus of South Georgia Technical College located on South Georgia Technical Parkway in Americus, Georgia. All members will remain in their vehicles during the meeting and listen to the meeting on their vehicle's FM radio. Votes will be cast by honking of car horns. The meeting will be called to order at 8:00 am with the business session beginning at 10:30 am. Entertainment will be provided by the Southern Gospel-Contemporary Trio called Remedy. Each member registering will receive a registration prize including a $15 credit on their electric bill.
