In 2020, there are three at-large seats open. Two are three-year terms and the third seat is a one-year term. The at-large candidate who receives the third highest number of votes will serve the one-year term. There is one designated employee director seat open for a two-year term. Current employees of Seward Co-op are eligible to run for the designated employee director seat.
The co-op’s articles and bylaws allow up to two seats to be filled by current employees. This means Seward Co-op employees may choose to run for an at-large seat. (In the event there had been more than one employee candidate in the at-large pool, only the top vote-getting employee would be seated.) Employees of Seward Co-op must specify which seat they are seeking: at-large or designated employee director.
Articles and Bylaws Proposals
In order to keep the co-op’s articles and bylaws up to date, the Board of Directors endorses the proposed articles and bylaws changes on the ballot. We encourage voting affirmative on each of these proposed changes.
Seward Co-op owners may vote online until Oct. 26 at 11:59 p.m. Click here to be directed to the online ballot.
Seward Co-op owners instead choose to vote via paper ballot. Be sure to complete both sides of your paper ballot. Return by mail or drop it off at the customer service desk at the Franklin or Friendship store. Paper ballots are due at all co-op locations by noon on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
