Help shape the future of Fertile Ground Food Cooperative!!
While the midterms have ended, our cooperative’s elections are just beginning. Now is the time for our annual election of board members. As stated in our bylaws, the Fertile Ground Food Cooperative Board of Directors is the group entrusted with the power to govern the Cooperative, and to ensure “that the mission of the Cooperative is carried out.”
The annual selection of board members is a critical contribution each member-owner makes to the health of the cooperative. Fertile Ground Food Cooperative is founded on democratic member control, meaning that board members are directly elected by and accountable to our member-owners. Our success depends on your involvement!
Want to cast your vote?
The cooperative’s voting period will run from Monday, November 21st through Sunday, December 4th. Please stay tuned to your email in the following week for details on your electronic ballot!
You can also learn more about the elections by attending our annual member-owner meeting on Saturday, December 3rd, from 2-4PM at the Southeast Raleigh YMCA (1436 Rock Quarry Rd. Raleigh, NC 27610). You can RSVP for this event today!
