It's Election Season

Voting is now underway! All members in good standing have the right to vote and choose the next representatives for the Board of Directors. This democratic form of governance is just one of the things that makes a co-op so great, and one of the key principles of cooperatives  The Board consists of nine members; three of these positions are up for vote and we have four applicants for these positions. Visit the Co-op’s election page for complete details including the candidates’ statements and a downloadable ballot. You can mail in your ballot or bring it to the Annual Member Meeting on November 10.
