This year, there are four (4) positions up for election to the Prairie Food Co-op Board. With both incumbents and new candidates running, we are impressed by the breadth of qualifications and experience these candidates bring to the mix. We wish we could elect all of them, but we can't, so check out each candidate and vote for who you think will be the most effective PFC board members.
Voting will begin at 6:00 a.m. Thursday, April 13th and will close at the conclusion of the PFC Annual Owners Meeting on April 27th.
All PFC Owners will receive an email with their ballot and simple instructions on how to cast their vote by April 14. Make sure you check your spam folder if you don't see it in your regular email. If you don't receive an email ballot, please email our PFC Board Secretary, Gerry Haptas.

Practicing Co-op Principle #2: Democratic Member Control
Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions. Representatives (directors/trustees) are elected among the membership and are accountable to them. In primary cooperatives, members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote); cooperatives at other levels are organized in a democratic manner.
