Each meeting takes place at 2:00p.m. at the mai...n office in Bamberg on the 4th Monday of each month with the exception of holidays and scheduled meetings that may fall on that date.
Our programs reflect a spirit of cooperation forged through more than half a century of partnership with our members. It is a way of doing business that sets us apart from other utilities and it is the foundation for our continued growth and success. From the smallest rural home to the largest industrial facility, our members are the first, last, and only reason we’re in business.
