Calling for Board of Directors Candidates

Hello fellow SFC members,

We (the SFC board) would like to remind all of you that our second board election will be occurring this fall. Any member can opt to run for a seat on the Board of Directors and we’d like to encourage you to consider contributing your skills to the continued growth of our cooperative community. (Click here for an application.) There are 4 seats open for election this year and the deadline for applications is November 8th. Voting will open the following week and close in early December. Please send applications to the Board at steering@seattlefarmcoop.com by November 8th and a current Board member will confirm receipt of your application.  We would love to see a larger turnout of people interested in serving and guiding the development of this community.

The details: Of course, we ask that you become or are already a member of the Co-Op if you choose to run for the Board of Directors. We also encourage you to attend at least one (if not a couple) board meetings in the interim. Doing so will give you a better idea of how the board works, the time commitment involved and the opportunities we have available for your skills. Not to mention you’ll have all the other board members in one room to grill with any questions! Our board meets twice a month and each board member takes on a separate special project of their choosing to lead.

Thanks to all of you for being members of this thriving community. Even if you aren’t able to consider becoming a part of our Board, the Co-op has a ton of areas in which we could use your help. If you are interested in becoming involved, contact us!
