Your co-op, your voice
At Bluebonnet, you're not a customer — you are a member and an owner.
Two of the seats on Bluebonnet’s Board of Directors are up for election this year. The seats represent District 2 from Travis County and District 3 from Bastrop County.
There are currently no ballot items to be decided this year. However, items can be added to the Annual Meeting agenda that would require a vote by members. Those items would have to be added no later than 10 days before the Annual Meeting.
Proxy voting allows members to designate another person to vote in his or her place. On the proxy form, members can assign their vote to either Bluebonnet’s Proxy Committee or to an individual. Proxies are counted to ensure at least 1% of Bluebonnet’s membership are present at the Annual Meeting to constitute a quorum. Proxy forms are due May 7, 2024.
Members may vote for Board candidates by submitting their proxy form by May 7, 2024, or by attending the Annual Meeting in person on May 14, 2024. There are currently no additional ballot items to be voted on this year. However, items can be added to the Annual Meeting agenda that would require a vote by members. Those items would have to be added no later than 10 days before the Annual Meeting. Your proxy could be used in that vote, which is why your proxy selection is important.
The Proxy Committee is composed of all Bluebonnet Board members whose terms are not currently up for election. This year’s Proxy Committee members are Ben Flencher, Milton Shaw, Roderick Emanuel, Robert Mikeska, Byron Balke, Debbi Goertz and Russell Jurk.
No, the proxy is valid only for the meeting specified on the proxy form.
