San Juan Food Co-op Annual Meeting
Wednesday, March 27th
To Our Dedicated Co-op Members,
The San Juan Island Food Co-op will be holding its Annual Meeting on Wednesday, March 27th at 6:00 pm at the San Juan Island Grange Hall. In advance of that gathering, we are looking for nominations of exceptional candidates wanting to join our Board of Directors.
We are looking for nominees from across career spectrums, and particularly invite nominations of those with legal prowess, non-profit or business backgrounds, and previous board experience.
There are currently two open Board positions, each carrying a term of two years. Starting today, we will be accepting nominations and will continue to do so leading up to the Annual Meeting. Please send all nominations to the San Juan Co-op email address, with “Board Nomination” in the subject line. Please include contact information for your nomination, so that we may notify them of the honor.
All nominations shall close prior to the commencement of the meeting and will be voted on therein. Nominations may be made by any voting member, and a candidate may nominate her/himself, if they so choose.
Nominees must accept the nomination before their name shall be placed on the ballot. The election period shall extend from the Annual Meeting for a minimum of one week and requires at least 10% of the Membership to vote before elections will be ratified.
Thank you for your participation and continued support.
We look forward to seeing you there!
