A Bright Spot in the 2020 Election

  | Board of Directors

Looking for something cheerful in the 2020 election season? Run for the Board of this shining beacon of hope, the Brattleboro Food Co-op!

While 2019 has only one board seat open for election, 2020 will have 4!! Now is the time to develop your very own “2020 Exploratory Committee.” Current BFC Board members are standing by to help with veteran operative experience–just email board@brattleborofoodcoop.coop.

What stars have aligned to create this fortuitous opportunity, you ask? Well, it’s complicated, involving various rules of civil procedure and signs of the zodiac, but suffice it to say: we have a strategy to get back on track,so that there are three seats up for election every year, as in previous years.

Here’s the exciting plan:

2019: One position open for a three-year term that can be filled by either a staff or patron director.

2020: Four open positions with two positions as three-year terms and two as two-year terms. The two candidates with the most votes will serve the three-year terms and next two highest vote-getters will serve the two two-year terms.

2021: Four open positions with three as three-year terms and one as two-year term. The three with the most votes will serve the three-year terms and next highest vote-getter will serve the one two-year term.

The result will be that we have three seats open for each election, starting 2022.

Get in touch about running today! Being on our Co-op’s Board of Directors is a wonderful way to be involved and serve your community! The Board is thoughtful in its work, dedicated to the success of the Co-op, and fun! Please join us!
