It is the right of all Owners/Shareholders to elect a Board of Directors and to vote on proposed bylaws governing the Co-op. Unlike traditional business models that favor a select few, the Rogers Park Food Co-op's 1-Person-1-Vote policy ensures that all have an equal voice.
Board elections are held annually.
The Rogers Park Food Co-op is served by a volunteer Board of Directors (the Board). The Board has up to nine seats, including a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and five directors. The term-of-service for Board members is 3 years with Board terms determined by shareholder/owner vote. In the case of Board vacancies, individuals elected by the Ownership will fill the remaining time of a term. Board vacancies are staggered to avoid seating a completely new Board at and any one time.
Ballot & Voting
Ballots will be made available until March 4th.
You may vote for up to 3 Board Candidates. Candidates who receive the highest number of votes will be elected to the longest terms available with your vote determining the term-limits of each director elected to The Board.
Votes will be tallied by a third party and will not be visible to candidates.
Results will be announced on March 30 at the Annual Owners Celebration, please RSVP HERE
