New online voting option coming with your ballot!
One of the many benefits of belonging to a cooperative is the opportunity to have an influence on the leadership of the association.
Each year, GreenStone members participate in selecting which members will serve on the association’s board of directors and nominating committee. On a four-year term basis, board seats in specified voting regions are voted on by those regions; in 2019, regions 6 and 7 will be electing two directors each to the Board of Directors. Annually, all Nominating Committee members are elected, all members vote for the committee representatives.
To simplify the voting process for member participation, improvements will be incorporated this year. New in 2019, members have the option of submitting their ballot online or by postal mail. Each member will receive their ballot in the mail during the first two weeks of May. Ballots will also be sent by email to those members who have provided their email address.
Members can choose the voting method most convenient for them. To validate the voting process, each ballot will have a code distinctive to the member or entity eligible to vote. If duplicate ballots are submitted (by mail and/or online), the last submitted ballot will be the one counted. We are hopeful this new process will make voting for GreenStone leadership easy for all members to participate.
All ballots must be received by midnight on June 12, 2019.
