PARTICIPATE IN OUR CO-OP BOARD ELECTIONS!
It's that time of year where we practice Co-op Principle #2 - Democratic Member Control - by electing owners to serve on our board. Owners will vote for directors to fill seven board positions, and those elected will serve one to three year terms. As a startup co-op, ours is a “working board”, not simply a “governing board”. All board members serve as volunteers without compensation and they devote significant time and attention to this worthy effort.
We are fortunate that seven Co-op owners have stepped forward and volunteered to serve on the Co-op board. Three board candidates are incumbents who have served at least 1 full term.. We have provided a link below to photos and bios of these individuals.
Voting will take place electronically from April 16 - April 30. Even though only seven candidates stepped forward to run for seven positions, we ask that you cast your ballots to show support for our ongoing hard work.
This year, with the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic keeping us safely at home, we will be recording our Annual Owners Meeting presentation. The recording will be available as quickly as we can produce it - hopefully by mid May. We encourage all Owners to view the presentation to learn more about our plans for moving forward towards opening day and how we will be counting on ALL owners to help in some way.
