Members of the PURE Oil Jobbers Cooperative, Inc. are gathering for their Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in Charleston, South Carolina during the weekend of Nov. 12-13, 2010. The event is being held downtown in the historic district at the Charleston Doubletree Guest Suites on Church Street.

The Agenda of the annual meeting begins with a golf outing on Friday morning, sponsored by Jim Wood & Associates (JWA). The group outing will be held at The Links at Stono Ferry, which is the home golf course of the College of Charleston Golf Team. On Friday evening, Co-op members will gather for a cocktail reception and dinner to follow, thanks to event sponsor TransMontaigne, Inc.

The business of the Co-op will be conducted on Saturday, beginning with breakfast, which is being sponsored by Professional Energy Management (PEM), followed by the shareholders’ meeting and the fourth quarter meeting of the PURE Board of Directors. Fuel Power Marketing and Colonial Oil Industries are sponsoring refreshments during the business meetings on Saturday.

All members are encouraged to attend the annual meeting, and participation is critical at the annual shareholders’ meeting especially, says Frank Dotson, general manager of the PURE Co-op. That’s when the Co-op membership will seek to finalize the revisions to its By-laws and Articles of Incorporation through Resolution that must be approved by a majority stockholder vote.


During the annual shareholders’ meeting on Saturday, the Co-op membership will also receive updates on the capitalization plan of the Co-op leadership, specifically the finance committee, as well as news and information on supply arrangements being discussed with current suppliers, with the help of consultants from PEM. Additional approved vendors of PURE also will be on hand during the Saturday business meetings, to educate petroleum marketers/oil jobbers on products and services available to them through their membership in the Co-op.

Charleston is a popular destination for business and fellowship for PURE Co-op members and their families. Guests will have opportunities to dine at outstanding restaurants, shop at national retailers, enjoy art and antique galleries, as well as visit historical and tourist sites that include Fort Sumter, the South Carolina Aquarium, and much more.

“This is the one time during the year that our members can gather for fellowship, while attending to Co-op business,” says Dotson. “Charleston is an ideal city with lots to do, conveniently located near our hotel, as we hope this will be an attractive destination and occasion for our members to enjoy.”
