Run For the Co-op Board
January 10, 2019
Love your Co-op? Run for the Board of Directors.
Applications for the 2019 Board of Directors' Election are available now at the Customer Service desk at Co-op West Main or online (see the sidebar of this article for application materials that you can download and print at home). Applications are due back by March 1, 2019.
Three seats will be available this election cycle, ending Thursday, May 16, 2019 at the General Membership Meeting (GMM). All member owners in good standing are encouraged to consider applying for, and serving on, the Co-op’s Board of Directors. This service is the epitome of what it means to be a member owner in a cooperative business.
The Co-op’s general membership votes for the Board of Directors, themselves member owners, in annual elections. The Board determines the direction of the organization.
Incumbents in the 2019 election are Carmen Byker-Shanks, Andleeb Dawood and Cameron Hildreth.
Member owners interested in applying are encouraged to contact Board members with questions, and are required as part of the application process, to interview with the Board and to attend either the February or March Board meeting.
For more information, pick up or download an Election Packet or e-mail to [email protected].
