Seeking Board Candidates
by Erin Watson, Board Member
Well friends, summer is upon us! This is the time of year we see our Cook County Whole Foods Co-op (CCWFC) in peak action. Local produce is bountiful, visitors from far and wide are perusing our aisles, and your CCWFC Board of Directors is beginning our search for candidates to run for board elections. If you are someone who cares about our Co-op
and its values and would like to play an integral role in its continued success, I invite you to consider running this fall. No previous board experience is necessary and we welcome diverse experiences and fresh ideas into our meeting space.
1. Besides playing an important role in our Co-op’s successful present and future, being a part of the CCWFC Board of Directors is a great way to:
2. Build valuable networks and relationships with fellow board members
3. Better understand board governance through personal experience
4. Develop a deeper understanding of cooperative values and what it takes to successfully operate a Co-op
5. Grow as a leader through board service
Board information packets and applications are available here: http://cookcounty.coop/about-us/board-of-directors/ or at the Co-op. The deadline for declaring your candidacy is September 1, 2018.
