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 17, 2018, at The Rutherford, 520 Rutherford Road, Greenville, SC 29609. Our social will begin at 5:30 PM, and the annual meeting at 6:30 PM. Enjoy giveaways, door prizes, and refreshments. 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) Governance (Nominating) Committee (2) Petition. A mail ballot will be provided if there are more nominees than vacancies. The Governance (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 Governance (Nominating) Committee consists of: Harry Brancheau of Inman, SC; Lee Brown of Inman, SC; Anthony Lawrence of Columbia, SC; Deborah Little of Columbia, SC; and Brent Ridenour of West Columbia, SC.
The following candidates were nominated: Joy Owens and Mike Strickland.

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, 2018. Please mail all information to: Governance (Nominating) Committee, PO Box 10708, Greenville, SC 29603.

SC Telco’s bylaws provide specific requirements to be followed for board elections. In the event there is only one nominee for each position to be fl/led, a mail ballot will not be conducted and there will be no nominations from the floor at the Annual Meeting. Results of the election will be announced at the Annual Meeting.
