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 were held throughout the summer for interested candidates. The final opportunity to express your interest in candidacy is this meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 27, at 5:30 p.m. 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. There is one designated employee director seat open for a one-year term, fulfilling the final year of a vacated seat. Current employees of Seward Co-op are eligible to run for the designated employee director seat. Employees are ineligible to run for an at-large seat this year. This is because Seward Co-op bylaws restrict the number of employees on the board to two, and one at-large employee director is currently mid-term.

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