I’d like to comment about the Raft River capital credits policy and the bylaw amendment. Policies are made/changed by the board of directors and member-owners have no say in policy other than by who they elect to the board. Bylaws have to be voted on and approved by the members.  It was a policy that was changed by the board that gave a five-year limit to how long before unclaimed capital credits become the cooperative’s property. There is a capital credit bylaw amendment to be voted on next month by the members which I noticed has just recently been posted on the Raft River Electric website, though not on the Facebook page. Now we have an opportunity to actually read it before we vote, but we won’t be able to ask any questions about it since there were no Area Meetings this year. I guess the only other option would be to contact a board member.
