Ferguson Resigns from HEMC Board of Directors
Jeff Ferguson, Chairman, Habersham EMC Board of Directors, announced his resignation at the close of today’s monthly board meeting.
Ferguson cited his growing business and time demands in his resignation:
After careful consideration, I have decided to resign from my position on the Board of Directors of
Habersham EMC. I feel that anyone who serves in this role should be able to dedicate hours of time
and energy toward the needs of the members, employees and cooperative. Since elected in 2008,
I have dedicated as much of my time as possible toward the EMC. However, as my business has grown
and expanded, I find that I no longer have adequate time to devote to this role.
I want to thank the members, who elected me, for the opportunity to serve them over these past
years. I have made friends that will last a lifetime and have been proud to serve with my fellow
board members and work with the employees that make this co-op great. I wish you all the best.
The Board elected David Wall as the new Chairman and Dustin Hulsey as the new Vice-Chairman (to fill Wall’s position). Billy Cantrell remains Secretary-Treasurer.
A search committee has been formed to identify and appoint a director for the East District to fill the immediate vacancy on the Board. The position will be up for election at the July 16, 2020 Annual Meeting. Whomever is elected for the district at the Annual Meeting will fulfill Ferguson’s unexpired term.
