Board Election Process

General Election + Term of Office

Each year, co-op households participate in the general election to elect Board members. Board members serve two-year terms, with approximately half being elected in alternating years (four members elected in odd years and five in even years). The elected nominees will begin their term immediately following the Special Meeting until the subsequent election in the next odd or even year.

Current Board Status

As no Directors will be actively serving at the start of the Special Meeting,* all nine seats are open to be filled at the election, presenting a unique opportunity for new voices and ideas to shape our cooperative's trajectory.

Board Resolutions on Election Procedures

The Board of Directors convened a Special Board Meeting on Saturday, November 11, to consider and approve a set of resolutions which finalized the ballot and laid out the details of the election procedures. The full set of resolutions can be viewed here and are also posted on CTC’s website
