Oakdale Electric Cooperative Kicks Off New Commitment to Community Award
The Selfless Service Award, a year-round commitment to community program, is making its debut at the co-op this spring. Oakdale Electric Cooperative [OEC] believes in the power of individuals stepping forward and using their talents for the benefit of others. In an effort to thank these outstanding individuals for their selfless service, OEC will recognize one nominated individual quarterly [January, April, July, and October] for his or her volunteer work.
Individuals engaging in community volunteerism, by performing valuable services that benefit and improve the quality of life within the communities served by Oakdale Electric Cooperative, are eligible for nomination. These communities include Elroy, Mauston, Necedah, Nekoosa, New Lisbon, Pittsville, Reedsburg, Sparta, Tomah, Wilton, Wisconsin Dells, and Wonewoc. Awards will not be granted, for example, to an individual in a paid position within a non-profit organization, an individual who assists another individual (i.e., lawn mowing, snow shoveling, etc.), or self-nominations.
Members and non-members residing within the communities served may nominate for and/or receive the Selfless Service Award. Completed nomination forms must be submitted by the specified deadlines of March 15, June 15, September 15, and December 15. The nomination form can be completed online at oakdalerec.com/selfless-service-award. Otherwise, a nomination form can be requested by contacting Oakdale Electric Cooperative at 608-372-4131 Monday - Friday from 7:30AM – 4PM.
Nomination Forms will be kept on file for consideration for the next quarterly award. If not selected at that time, they will be omitted from further consideration.
The Selfless Service Award nominations forms will be reviewed and the winner selected by General Manager/CEO Chris Tackmann. The winner will be notified on or about the first day of each month in January, April, July and October.
The winner of the Selfless Service Award will receive a $250 gift card, plaque, and recognition in Oakdale Electric Cooperative’s monthly member publications, website, and social media pages.
