The South Philly Food Co-op is hosting a Board Nomination Q&A and signature gathering event on Sunday, February 23 from 2pm to 4pm at Shot Tower Coffee (542 Christian Street). Representatives of our Leadership Committee will be present to answer questions and we will conduct a "speed dating"-style signature exchange to help you get the 15 signatures required for nomination. Potential nominees need not be present to gather signatures so if you can find someone else to bring your form along, you can still take advantage of this event.
Full details about the procedure and requirements for getting on the ballot and a complete Board Member job description can be found on our website. The most important attribute for Board service is commitment of time and energy to complete the Board’s work. It is vital that every director accepts the responsibility to contribute and honors that commitment. Member-owners who serve on the Board of Directors for the two-year term beginning July 1, 2014 will be part of a group that will take the Co-op through one of the most critical points in its history.
Even if you're just curious about what it means to be on the Board or you want to offer your signature to some candidates, join us on February 23 at Shot Tower Coffee.
Questions and completed nomination forms can be emailed to Leadership Committee Chair Aubrey Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
