The PURE Oil Jobbers Cooperative, Inc. will host its Annual Stockholders Meeting during the weekend of March 23-25, 2012, at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

“This is an exciting time for the PURE Co-op, so we expect a good turnout for the Annual Stockholders Meeting, especially with another great location in Orlando selected by our planning committee,” says Frank Dotson, general manager of the PURE Oil Jobbers Cooperative. “We also hope that the industry will take notice of the current enhancements our Board has provided for the Co-op, which are well underway to improve our competiveness in the marketplace.”

Pure_annual_meeting_greg_pic_4 During the Annual Stockholders Meeting, PURE members will gather to receive feedback on their financial investment in the Co-op, which should include reports on contracted volumes achieved for the year. The Stockholders Meeting also typically includes updates on supply arrangements from consultants at Professional Energy Management (PEM) and improvements to Co-op operations that will allow PURE to become a price maker instead of a price taker in the petroleum marketing business, says Dotson.

The opening reception of the PURE Annual Stockholders Meeting will feature a vendor trade show, where the authorized vendors of PURE products and services will be on hand to share their latest offerings available to PURE members. The event’s opening reception, on Friday evening March 23, is being sponsored by PEM, while the dinner that evening is being sponsored by TransMontaigne, Inc.

The breakfast that morning is being sponsored by Federated Insurance, PURE’s recommended insurance carrier for property and casualty, life and disability insurance, as well as financial protection service. Orchestra, LLC and WorldPay will provide refreshments during the event, while Colonial Oil has signed on as a sponsor of the Annual Meeting as well.

The PURE Annual Stockholders Meeting has been held in previous years during the month of November, but last year the PURE Board of Directors elected to change the date of the event to allow for a complete review of Co-op activities for an entire calendar year. The organization’s By Laws allow for the Annual Stockholders Meeting to be held within the first quarter of the following year.

The hotel has 400,000 feet of flexible meeting space, including a 178,500 square-foot exhibit hall and a 4.5-acre indoor garden.
