Do you have ideas about how to improve the Co+op? Are you passionate about making the store an essential part of our community? Now is the time to start thinking about serving on the Co+op’s nine-person Board of Directors. Voting doesn’t start until the Annual Meeting on April 19, but there are a few things prospective candidates must do before then.
To qualify, a board candidate must be a Los Alamos Co+operative Market member in good standing for the four months prior to the election. Candidates declare their intent to run by reading the Candidate Information and emailing their responses to the “Board Candidate Questions” to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 22.
The Board wants to encourage interested candidates to obtain a good understanding of board duties and responsibilities. To that end, it suggests that candidates take any or all of the following steps in addition to responding to the Board Candidate Questions:
- Read the Board Candidate Information Packet (answering the questions included here is mandatory)
- Attend a board meeting prior to the election (the next one is Wednesday, March 22, at 6 p.m. at ProjectY)
- Meet with a current board director for an informal discussion about board duties and responsibilities
Although the steps outlined above are optional, ballots will indicate whether or not candidates have completed them.
The Board looks forward to receiving your application!
