Well, if I were on the board of a large coop utility about to hold an
Annual Meeting of the members, I'd want to make sure that all the
preparations were ready for that meeting, for one thing. Sort of a
dry run to make sure everything's in place, make sure everyone knows
what their roles are, etc.

Because we complained about them having a pre-meeting, the annual
meeting, and a post-meeting and getting paid three times on the same
day in the past. Now they can't do that any more, it'll all be
called one meeting. So there's not as much monetary motivation to do
a marathon day (and more to do a "special" meeting)

Good for the Hard Heads. Even though you might be outnumbered
there, you're keeping them on their toes.
