Vote Now – Ballots are in the Store!

Valued Yelm Food Coop Members!

If you missed the Annual Member Meeting on Saturday, Sept 23rd, you can still vote for the 2 Directors standing for election this year: Debbie Lusk and Judy Scott. You must be either an original YFC member or be a current new YFC member.

We are required by State law to have a board of directors and by our bylaws to have a minimum of 5. Voting this year will ensure that we meet our requirements – no Board, no Co-op!

These people have a variety of responsibilities among others are ensuring that everything the co-op management does is legal, adheres to the mission statement and is financially sound.

These directors are elected by the members – that be YOU! – on an annual basis depending on their term lengths. This year, for example, only 2 of the 5 Directors are up for election. But, we need them to be legally elected so that we have the 5 minimum required by our bylaws.

The new director team after the voting complete will be:

Carl Zambuto
Diane D’Acuti
Debbie Lusk
Judy Scott
Jeevan Anandasakaran

Ballots are available at the Yelm Food Co-op until October 21st or until we reach a quorum. Ask a cashier to help you.

Thanks.

Your Voice and Your Vote Matters !

~The Directors of the
Yelm Food Cooperative~

Annual General Meeting Sept 23rd, 2017

                  annual general meeting

It’s that time again for the members of the Yelm Food Cooperative to get together at the Annual General Meeting and review how our store has been doing and where it’s going in the future.

You’ll get updates on the store’s finances, membership and future plans like food service expansion.

You’ll have a chance to talk to your General Manager and your Board of Directors one-on-one and get questions you may have answered straight from the horses’ mouth 🙂

Also, if you are a paid up member*, you’ll be eligible to vote for the Directors who are standing for election:

Debbie Lusk – the Board Treasurer

Judy Scott – the newest member of the Board appointed this year

Afterwards, as always, you’ll get to sample a great selection of goodies from the Co-op put together by Florence Vincent and her team.

This is a chance to make your voice heard – it’s your Co-op!

              Saturday, September 23rd
              2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
              Yelm Community Center, 2nd St & Mosman Ave (at the Yelm City Park)

We look forward to seeing you there.


The Directors of the Yelm Food Cooperative
