You shop at Wheatsville. You support Wheatsville’s mission to create a self-reliant, self-empowering community of people that will grow and promote a transformation of society toward cooperation, justice, and non-exploitation. So why not consider a role that allows you to help govern your co-op, too? Are you a co-op member with a computer, a little spare time, and a desire to oversee the business and policy of your co-op? If so, run for a place on the Board of Directors!
In the upcoming months, the Nominations Committee will hold orientation sessions for Co-op members interested in learning more about serving on the Board. These sessions are designed to let you know more about what the Board does, the Policy Governance model it follows, and to determine whether the Board’s work is something that you are really interested in doing. The Nominations Committee will publish the orientation dates on the Board of Directors page of our website. In the meantime, take a look at the website under Membership/ Board of Directors to read the current process for a co-op election and the qualifications you need to be a director.
Please come to a Board meeting or two to watch the current directors in action or join on one of our committees and work directly with the Board on important issues such as financial auditing. Board meeting information is posted on the Board’s web page, too, in the Announcements box on the right side of the page. The Board alternates the meeting location between the two store locations each month, so be sure to check which location is hosting the meeting you are interested in attending.
Current Nominations Committee members include Rose Marie Klee, Chair, Lisa Mitchell, and Lyz Nagan. Co-op members with questions about Board elections are welcome to contact us at email@example.com.
