Edgar Chapman at Coweta-Fayette EMC

Edgar Chapman of Peachtree City has joined Coweta-Fayette EMC’s Operation Round-Up Trust Board. He will serve a three year term as one of nine members on the board. The Trust Board is the governing body that makes decisions on how the Operation Round-Up funds will be used.

Operation Round-Up is a Coweta-Fayette EMC program which awards more than $200,000 yearly to worthy causes in the EMC service area. These funds come from voluntary contributions of EMC members whose monthly electric bills are “rounded up” to the nearest dollar. The money is then placed in an interest-bearing account and these funds are managed by this board of directors.

Chapman has served as Chairman of the Talbot State Bank with offices in Fayette and Talbot Counties since 1980. He is a member of the Endowment Committee for Cultural Arts in Fayette County, a sponsor of both Peachtree City and Fayetteville Amphitheaters, a Trustee of the Roosevelt Warm Springs Development fund, an Elder at the First Presbyterian Church in Peachtree City and is a member of the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce and originally served on the organizing Board of Directors. He is also a former member of the Peachtree City Council

Coweta-Fayette EMC is a consumer-owned cooperative providing electricity and related services to 70,000 consumers in Fayette, Coweta, Clayton, South Fulton, Spalding, Troup, Heard and Meriwether counties.
