Board Elections

Posted on Friday, January 31st, 2020 in General.

The second cooperative principle is about Democratic Member Control.
Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions. Elected representatives (directors) are elected from among the membership and are accountable to the membership.

We hold elections every year to fill empty seats on our board of directors.

Applications are due at the end of February. If you’d like to apply, here are a few things you need to know:

What is required of a Director:

  1. A genuine interest in Co-op issues and our community.
  2. A four-year commitment to the Board.
  3. A willingness to take responsibility for Board duties and work together with understanding, mutual support, and respect to make decisions that will enhance the viability of the Co-op.

Board directors are owners in good standing and have a fiduciary responsibility to the owners to act in an informed and prudent manner.

Directors have a duty to represent the owners at large and to act in their best interests (not those of any one faction thereof).

Board applicants undergo a background check and need to attend one (1) board meeting before the May election.
