Let’s get together.

Each year, we have the opportunity to get face-to-face with our members—outside of car loans and daily personal banking, and it’s an opportunity we look forward to taking full advantage of and celebrating together.

This year, we’ll host our Annual Meeting on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, at Larkin’s Sawmill, 22 Graves Drive, Greenville, SC 29609 again. Our social will begin at 5:30 PM, and the annual meeting at 6:30 PM. We’ll have a lot of fun stuff going on—door prizes, refreshments, and entertainment by visual artist and inspirational speaker Richard Hight. More info can be found at the registration link below.




SC Telco bylaws provide for two methods of nominations to vacancies on the Board of Directors: (1) Nominating Committee (2) Petition. A mail ballot will be provided if there are more nominees than vacancies. The Nominating Committee is required to submit at least one candidate for each vacancy on the Board. The committee considers each candidate’s education, financial or business experience, as well as a willingness to serve on the board if elected.This year’s nominating committee consists of: Deborah Little of Columbia, SC; Brent Ridenour of West Columbia, SC and Harry Brancheau of Inman, SC.

The following candidates were nominated: Steve Griffin and Bryant Harrison.

SC Telco’s members may also nominate by petition. To do this, each candidate must submit a petition signed by at least 1% of the membership (500 members). This petition must contain each member’s “printed name,” address and signature. A brief statement of qualifications and biographical information of the candidate, similar to those of the nominees listed here must accompany the petition. The resume portion of the statement must be 100 words or less. A petition nominee must also submit a signed certificate stating that he or she is willing to serve if elected. Petitions must be received no later than February 14, 2017. Please mail all information to: Nominating Committee, PO Box 10708, Greenville, SC 29603.
