This time of year is exciting for the governance of our Co-op. Both the election of board members and our annual meeting will occur in the coming months.
The election of board members will begin on October 27th and votes may be cast through November 30th. The board encourages all member-owners to participate in the democratic process and cast their vote in this year’s election. In recent years, we’ve had some of our best turnouts with hundreds of votes being cast each year. But we can do even better. Information about the candidates will be shared in October. Please take a moment to get to know the candidates and in addition to casting your vote, encourage other member-owners to do the same.
If you’re interested in getting more involved, consider running for the board. If you would like to learn more about this, feel free to contact the board at firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidate declaration runs through September 22nd. Declarations may be submitted here.
Our annual meeting will take place the afternoon of November 3rd. At the annual meeting, you’ll have a chance to hear from board members and management, learn about key issues, and get an overview of our fiscal performance. The board invites all member-owners to join, and we would love to see you there. The annual meeting committee is recruiting members to assist with planning, promoting, and day-of duties including decorations, set-up, clean up, and staffing tables. If you would like to help out, please e-mail the board at email@example.com.
