Board of Directors Elections
City Market, Onion River Co-op's Board of Directors consists of nine members, elected from the general Membership. Elections are held annually and Board Members generally serve for a term of three years. When a Board Member vacates a seat before the end of their 3-year term, the Board may appoint a new Board Member who will serve until the next election process. This year we have five seats up for election; three of these seats are for 3-year terms, one seat is for a 2-year term, and another seat is for a 1-year term to finish out a vacated seat. The three candidates who receive the most votes will be elected for 3-year terms, starting January 2020 and ending December 2022. The candidate with the fourth most votes will be elected to the 2-year term, starting January 2020 and ending December 2021. The candidate with the fifth most votes will be elected to the 1 year term starting January 2022 and ending December 2022.
We are now accepting applications for the Board of Directors for the October 2021 Co-op Elections. The deadline to submit applications is September 1, 2021.
