Welcome to the Cobb EMC Forum

Encouraging Member participation in the affairs of Cobb EMC


The COBB EMC FORUM is made up of Cobb EMC rate paying Member/Owners. The Forum works to insure responsible management by the Cobb EMC Board of Directors and Senior Management Staff.

It is important to know that every Cobb EMC rate payer is a Member/Owner of Cobb EMC.

The Forum’s goal is to ensure that Cobb EMC is focused to provide Member/Owners with the very best service and lowest rates in the State of Georgia. The Forum also works to inform Member/Owners of the activities and actions of Cobb EMC and encourage Member participation in EMC governance.
