Another election. Woohoo!

If you or someone you know has time and passion for co-ops and strong skills to bring to the table, we are seeking up to four new board members to serve a two-year term. We are accepting board nominations until November 22, 2014.

It will be a wonderful afternoon. Light snacks will be provided! Click here for more information on our AGM, elections, and board applications.
