Many co-op activities continue during the pandemic, including our annual board of directors’ election. The current board invites potential candidates to learn more by attending their online meetings this summer. Candidates must be current owners of Seward Co-op and be committed to the long-term sustainability of our co-op.
Attending Summer Board Meetings
All potential candidates are required to attend an online board meeting and candidate info session to be eligible to run in the election. The next board meeting is Tuesday, May 26. Prior to the start of the business meeting, the board will host a candidate information session beginning at 5:30 p.m. Please join us if you are interested in learning more about being a candidate in this year’s election. Board meetings are held the last Tuesday of each month, calling to order at 6:15 p.m. Additional meetings this summer are June 30 and July 28 – mark your calendars if you can’t make it this month! Please email email@example.com to RSVP for all board-related events.
Upon attending a meeting, you’ll hear more information and receive documents with details about the expectations of candidates in 2020. All interested candidates will need to submit a form, essay and questionnaire by Friday, July 31.
Candidates are strongly encouraged to attend the Aug. 25 and Sept. 29 board meetings as well, in addition to a (likely online) candidate forum on Oct. 6. The 2020 election will occur in October.
Remember: to obtain a candidate application, attendance is required at a board meeting this summer. Options are May 26, June 30, and July 28. Prior to each of these meetings, the board will hold a candidate information session beginning at 5:30 p.m. Mark your calendars now and RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org!
