Seeking Board Nominations

The Monadnock Food Co-op Board of Directors seeks candidates for this year’s election.  Three board seats are open and one board member is running for re-election. Please read more details below.

To be a director, you must be a Monadnock Food Co-op member-owner. Directors elected in 2013 will serve three-year terms ending in 2016. The Board Nominating Committee oversees the slate of candidates, and there are two ways you can run for the board:

1.  Nomination through the Board Nominating Committee
You can nominate yourself by submitting your name to the Board Nominating Committee via jay.smeltz@gmail.com. Potential candidates will be asked to submit a statement of interest and qualifications. Nominations are due by August 15, 2013.  The Board Nominating Committee will then review all candidates and create a slate of nominees at their discretion.

2.  Nomination by Petition
If you would like to run by petition, you are required to collect the signatures of at least 50 other member-owners in good standing and submit your petition to the Nominations Committee. Candidates running by petition will be required to fill out an application packet and submit a digital photo. Informational interviews with the Nominations Committee are not required but are strongly suggested, and are available by appointment. Candidates may not submit petitions on behalf of another member-owner but only for themselves. Signed petitions are due by September 15, 2013.

Questions?  Contact jay.smeltz@gmail.com.

All nominees for the Board election will be identified in a roster mailed to all Member-Owners in advance of our election and annual meeting.
