USFWC members, it’s time to exercise your right and responsibility to elect the next round of At-Large Representatives to the Board of Directors. This year, we have a super special group of candidates who demonstrate a variety of skills, perspectives and experiences, but who share a vision for an economy that prioritizes the health and prosperity of workers and their communities.
There are 11 candidates running to fill five open At-Large Board seats. All the information necessary to vote including your personalized code should have been emailed to your workplace.
If you haven’t received the code, please let us know as soon as possible, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Worker Cooperatives, Democratic Workplaces, Cooperative Developers and Federation Partners are eligible to vote. Online voting closes Sunday, October 17th, 2021. (Extended deadline!)
At the USFWC Fall virtual member meeting September 23rd, there will be an open forum for candidates to present themselves and answer member questions — register for the virtual member meeting here!
Our Board of Directors plays an important role in advancing the worker cooperative movement in the US and centering the interests and needs of our members in long term strategy as well as our daily operations. We’re stronger together and with your collective participation in these elections, we can continue to strengthen the grassroots democracy of the USFWC as we welcome new leadership on our Board.
