Nominations For The USFWC Board Of Directors – Regional

Lea esta página en español

Did you know that the USFWC board strategically represents regions across the country?

Each year, the USFWC hosts an annual election for the Board of Directors. On odd years, we hold an election for our at-large positions, and on even years like 2022, we elect our Regional Representatives, who advocate for the co-ops in their area: North, South, East, and West.

There is 1 open seat for each of our regions. Voting members may nominate one or more of your members to run for the Regional Representative seat of your Region!*

Nominations are open from May 25th to August 1st.
