Board Meetings: Schedules, Agendas & Minutes
OWNER-MEMBER BYLAW REVIEW
Our board is working to update the legal documents that provide the governance structure for Bloomington Cooperative Services, Inc. With the support of your vote we have changed the bylaws to increase the number of directors from seven to nine and to welcome up to two employee owner-members as directors. In addition, we have cleaned up and simplified the Articles of Incorporation.
We are now finishing the rewrite of the bylaws. Originally, we had hoped to have this done for a special vote in March, 2017. However, the current plan is to have the rewrite completed by the end of March, 2017 to be voted on in our next board election in September/October, 2017.
This is very important work for the co-op and we need your feedback. Some of the issues we are still discussing are inactive status for owner-members, institutional owner-membership and quorum requirements for owner-member meetings.
