Last chance, only two seats available this year! We sometimes hear comments from member-owners that they would like a choice when voting for board members. The last election was uncontested. That could mean you are really happy with the current board’s guidance of Bloomington Cooperative Services -- or that you just could not take the time to get involved last year.
To have a choice means there have to be more members running for office than there are vacancies. Now is the time to pick up a Candidate Packet at any of the Bloomingfoods stores and show us your interest. We like to have a pool of people from which you can choose the next board members, so that even if you are not voted in for the upcoming term, we know we can count on you in the future should there be an unexpected vacancy or for a future term.
Currently, you have a chance to work with six other dedicated and competent board members who are responsible for setting the policies that guide the direction of BCS. Being on the board is an excellent way to serve our member-owners and the Bloomington community in general. BCS actively supports numerous healthful living and local art events, plus contributes food to organizations which feed the hungry in our town. We also do our best to model sustainable business practices so that others can see it works. Now is your chance to be part of this very important undertaking, one more way to keep the planet alive and well. We hope you will join us this year.
Carol Bridges, Secretary
Bloomingfoods/BCS Board of Directors
