Advisory Committees were formed in 1981 to improve the communications between members, employees, and the Board of Directors. Representatives of the Director Panel attend the advisory committee meetings, and report any concerns or suggestions to the full board.
The Member Advisory Committee shall be composed of a maximum of six (6) memberships from each Director District, meet annually in February, or more frequently, if needed, to discuss important issues regarding the Cooperative. This important committee also appoints the District Nominating Committees, which are charged with selecting a qualified slate of candidates for the director election.
Committee members serve a term of three years. They are then required to vacate their seat for at least one year, before becoming eligible to be reappointed. This allows for new members and new ideas on the committees.
Interested in Serving?
If you are interested in serving on this or any other committee, completing the Member Advisory Committee Application is the first step. Each year, a member involvement survey is distributed to the membership asking for volunteers, and we refer to this list throughout the year.
