How to Run for MCPA Board of Directors
Each year three districts elect directors. Districts 1, 2 & 3 hold elections in one year, Districts 4, 5 & 6 the following year, and Districts 7, 8 & 9 the year after that. When the district in which your membership resides is having an election, you are eligible to submit your name to the Nominating Committee as a possible candidate, if you meet the candidate requirements specified below.
Those interested in representing their district should return a completed director application form to the co-op to be considered as a candidate by the Nominating Committee from your district. The Nominating Committee must choose two names to appear on the ballot. If more than two candidates are interested in running for a board seat, any persons not chosen may get 20 signatures from members in their district on a Nomination by Petition form, and upon submitting it the co-op with 20 valid names by the deadline for the petition, you can also be a candidate on the ballot. Directors are elected by voters in their district.
Directors serve three-year terms.
This year’s (2023) election will be for districts 1, 2 & 3.
Director Application (PDF) – interested individuals should submit this by March 31.
Director Nominating Petition Form (PDF) – nominations by petition must be received by May 27.
How to Vote in Elections
Anytime there is a vote of the membership, whether on revising bylaws or a director election, a ballot will be mailed to each eligible member giving them the opportunity to cast their vote by mail. Any vote is preceded by repeated publications of information on the issue, candidates and voting options in the Cooperative’s monthly newsletter. Any additional voting options, such as voting at the Annual Meeting or returning a ballot in person at the Cooperative are explained in the newsletter information. Members vote for directors in their district to serve a three-year term. So, a member can expect to receive a ballot for a director election every third year.
