The Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC is warning members to be on guard against a scam claiming to contact them on behalf of the “REMC”. The scam is being perpetrated via phone calls to members of UDWI REMC. To protect yourself, do not provide any of your personal or account information.
“As always, if someone calls claiming to represent the REMC, and it doesn’t sound right, please call us to verify,” urges Doug Childs, UDWI REMC CEO. “Your safety is our primary concern.
Anyone receiving such calls should immediately report them to the local police department.

Media Statement from UDWI REMC Board of Directors
December 22, 2017
The Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC Board of Directors accepted the resignation of District 8 Director Jack Norris.
Norris submitted his resignation Wednesday, Dec. 20 citing personal reasons for his decision. Effective immediately, Norris will no longer serve on the Board of Directors and has withdrawn his name as a District 8 candidate for the 2018 Director elections.
At this time, the Board has made no decision about filling the vacancy. Cooperative by-laws give the Board two options to address a vacant seat: the Board may appoint a member to fill the position, or leave the seat vacant until the election in 2018. A Board-appointed member would be deemed a temporary Director, and would only serve until the next election cycle unless he or she chooses to officially file as a candidate for the District and subsequently wins the election.
Members interested in running as a candidate in the 2018 elections for District 8, which represents portions of Greene and Owen counties and includes the greater Bloomfield and Worthington areas, must submit all required documentation and obtain 50 signatures of support by Jan. 14, 2018. All required paperwork is available at the UDWI REMC headquarters in Bloomfield during regular business hours. No late submissions will be accepted.
