March 4th and Vote!

March 1 @ 12:00 am - March 31 @ 12:00 am

During the month of March we will be conducting our yearly voting period. Members may vote in the store, online or at the Owners’ Annual Meeting  on Sunday, March 4th.  This year’s ballot will be more significant than many before as not only will we be asking you to select new Directors for 2018, but we will be asking you to cast a vote to update policy which directly affects your benefits.  In premise, to more perfectly reflect the democratic control mandated by our Cooperative Incorporation’s founding documents.

*  In this year’s election, Owners will be called to vote on Co-op policy that directly affect their membership benefits, as well as electing Board members and selecting non profit nominees for the Cooperative Community Fund and Round Up at the Register for 2018.

*  Our voting period will be the entire month of March:  beginning on the 1st and ending on the 31st.

2018 Co-op Elections Ballot

  • This is used to verify your identity and for auditing purposes; your name and your vote will be kept confidential. Please use the primary member name on file at the co-op.
  • Please enter the member number you give to the cashier when checking out, i.e. the 4 or 5 digit number. This would be the 4 or 5 digits after the zeros and not counting the last digit. Remember, one vote per household. If you have any trouble logging in, please email outreach@foodconspiracy.coop and let us know.

  • Food Conspiracy Board of Directors is guided by bylaws and resolutions. There are three propositions on this ballot--two for bylaw changes and one resolution. Note: Approved bylaw changes will occur with the next planned bylaws revision.
  • Currently, the Board may defer up to 80% of owner patronage rebates without approval by owners.
  • Currently, a candidate is required to submit their application to run for a board position at least 120 days before the annual meeting.
  • Currently, if an owner in good standing does not patronize the store for a year they lose many rights of ownership, including the right to vote in elections.
