Candidate Info Session

  • Creamery office, 2nd floor

Seward Co-op’s Board of Directors is seeking candidates in the 2019 board election. If you are committed to the cooperative business model and want to ensure the long-term success of our co-op, please consider being a candidate. In order to receive a Board Candidate Application, attendance is required at a board meeting and a candidate information session this summer.

Info sessions will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays June 25, July 30, and Aug. 27. Join us to learn about expectations and responsibilities of board service from current directors. Please RSVP by emailing board@seward.coop.


2019 Election Details

There are four at-large seats open. Three are three-year terms and the fourth seat is a one-year term. The candidate who receives the fourth highest number of votes will serve the one-year term. Current Seward Co-op employees are not eligible to be candidates in 2019. This is because Seward Co-op bylaws restrict the number of employees on the board of directors to two, and both employee directors are currently mid-term.

The election will be held in October, ending at the Annual Meeting on Oct. 22.
