In 2017, the Co-op Market Board of Directors has passed amendments to the bylaws. Some of the changes are simple copy edits, but the majority are to correct sections that do not conform to the state statute governing co-ops (AS 10.15). The board sought and received thorough legal review of these governing documents.
These bylaws changes appear on the 2017 ballot and must be approved by Co-op Market Owners. For reference, here are copies of the current bylaws passed in 2015, the 2017 amended bylaws and a summary of the 2017 amendments.
The 2017 election opens on September 21st and ends on October 19th. Electronic ballots will be emailed to Owners, and paper ballots will be available in the store. Results will be presented at our 9th Annual Co-op Meeting on October 19th at Birch Hill Recreation Area. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
For more information on the bylaws, please email board chair Anduin McElroy at email@example.com.
