New Year, New Resolution

Please join the Feather River Food Co-op Board of Directors

Dear Membership,

Happy 2022 from the Feather River Food Co Op Board of Directors!    As you ponder how to best dive into your new resolutions for 2022, consider running for the BOD of your favoritie business right here in Plumas County. Co-ops are founded upon and thrive because of community, and one of the best ways to deepen your commitment and involvement with your local Co-op, is to run for a seat on the Board of Directors.

Serving on the Board of Directors allows member-owners to directly participate in the governance and management of the Co-op. Democratic member control is one of the seven cooperative principles we are organized around, and participation in the Board is one of the best ways to fulfill that principle.  All member-owners who are in good standing and have been members for at least six months prior to the start of the election on March 1, 2022 are encouraged to consider applying for, and serving on, the Board of Directors.

Election Handbook materials for the 2022 Board of Directors Election will be available both on our website and within Feather River Food Co Op stores by January 1, 2022. Declarations of Interest are due at the close of January 2022. 

Three seats are available this election cycle which closes at the end of March 2022 with terms beginning in April of 2022. Prospective candidates are encouraged to submit a Declaration of Candidacy as contained in the Election Handbook. Declarations can be sent to outreach@featherriver.coop, and/or the Board at board@featherriver.coop.

The QNF/FRFC general membership votes for the Board of Directors, themselves member-owners, in annual elections. The QNF/FRFC Board of Directors determines the direction of the organization. If you’ve longed to deepen your commitment to the Co-op and learn the ins and outs of what makes our local Co-Op community minded, stable, strong and successful, please consider running for the Board.

Member-owners interested in running with any questions are encouraged to contact Board members at board@featherriver.coop and are welcome to attend our next Board meeting January 20th, 2022. An orientation for prospective candidates will be held later in January.

Our Co-op depends upon community ownership and involvement and serving on the Board has provided an excellent opportunity to demonstrate that. 

In Cooperation,

Scott Stirling,  Board Development Committee Chair
