It's that time of year when Co-op members have the opportunity to run for a seat on our governing council. The council consists of nine members, elected from the general membership. Elections are held annually prior to the annual meeting in November. There will be at least three open seats and council members generally serve 3-year terms.
In an effort to better educate new candidates about council work, including the time commitment involved and the associated responsibilities, the council has created a list of optional preparedness activities. These include an information guide, in-person info sessions, attending a council meeting, and some reading. The next council meeting and the schedule for info sessions are listed below.
Candidates should fill out the application including the signatures of at least nine members in good standing. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, September 4.
