STRATA Networks announced that due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic crisis and as part of the directive given by Governor Gary R. Herbert on March 25, 2020, several upcoming community events are being postponed or canceled.
The Board of Directors met virtually on March 26, 2020 and, after reviewing the directives from government and health officials regarding the present pandemic, decided it was in the best interest of the members and employees to postpone the Annual Meeting until it is safe for the members to meet. Section 3.4 of the organization’s bylaws authorize the postponement of the Annual Meeting by the Board of Directors.
Board Chairman, Kent Peatross stated, “the health and safety of our community, employees, and our members is paramount. We hope that things will be better in June but knowing that our election process is set to begin in April, we felt it necessary to postpone the June meeting so that the election process can move forward unencumbered and operationally sound. We are monitoring the coronavirus situation closely and we will announce a new Annual Meeting date as soon as it is prudent.”
This also includes the postponement of the election process for directors from the Duchesne, Flattop, Fruitland, and Lapoint districts. The original dates given for individuals desiring to run for director, between April 10 and April 27, 2020, will be updated in accordance with the new date of the Annual Meeting. The Cooperative will notify the membership once a new date has been established.
STRATA has also elected to postpone the 19th Annual Charity Golf Classic that was scheduled for May 15th in Roosevelt and May 29th in Vernal, to a later date. The tournaments will now be held on August 14th in Roosevelt, and August 28th in Vernal.
Each year STRATA also sponsors a group of students who are selected to attend the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) Tour in Washington DC and the URECA Leadership Challenge at Snow College. Due to the unfolding coronavirus significantly affecting large events and gatherings, the FRS tour to Washington D.C. and the URECA Leadership Challenge have both been canceled.
“We look forward to the time we can once again unite with our community through annual events and gatherings to celebrate the resilience of the people here in the Uintah Basin. Until that time, we will continue to do our part to keep you connected to your friends and family,” stated CEO/General Manager, Bruce H. Todd.
