NEW Wheatland color with tag-FINAL

Wheatland Electric Cooperative Inc. (WEC) is hosting this year’s 2024 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, April 24, at the Great Bend Events Center, 3111 10th St., and in seven other remote locations across its service territory: Scott City, Leoti, Tribune, Syracuse, Garden City, Harper, and Caldwell. 

Wheatland Electric is “Illuminating Connections” through this year’s annual meeting. This year’s theme provides the co-op a unique and enlightening opportunity to share the connections the co-op works to create every day – not just through the energy it delivers, but through the partnerships it builds, projects it helps fund, and new programs it implements – all with the goal of empowering the communities it serves. 

All Wheatland Electric co-op members (account holders) are invited to attend this year’s primary meeting location in Great Bend or at a remote meeting location to learn co-op news and updates, voice any concerns, connect with cooperative staff and trustees, and win door prizes, including a grand-prize giveaway: a backyard/patio party package which includes an outdoor television box, large-screen television, backyard lights, and more. 

The results of this year’s trustee elections will also be announced at the annual meeting. For more information on this year’s voting process, which will be held by mail and when members can expect their ballots, visit or contact your local office. 

Registration at this year’s annual meeting opens at 11 a.m. and lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. at all meeting locations. The business meeting will commence at noon. 

Members in attendance at any meeting location can register to win door prizes and are also eligible to win our grand prize giveaway. Every member household in attendance at all locations will also receive a special take home gift.
