Each spring, the members of Weavers Way Co-op vote for Board members. Weavers Way belongs to its members, and each household’s vote is important to assure that our Co-op is led by those who represent the interests of the members.
This year, seven of your fellow members are running for five openings on the Board. Visit this page to find the candidates’ photos and written answers to five questions about their leadership ideas; the online version also includes video interviews, with each candidate answering five additional questions.
Did you know that for a Weavers Way Board election to be valid, 10 percent of member households must cast a vote? So each year, as our membership grows, we need more members to vote. Now that we have three stores and a membership approaching 10,000, we need 1,000 members to vote this month!
Voting begins April 1. You can vote online or by paper ballot. To vote online, log in to the Weavers Way Member Center, members.weaversway.coop. Don’t know your login? We’ll be sending each member an email containing a private, custom link that goes directly to the online ballot, no login needed. Once someone votes from your household, you will not be prompted again. (Remember, one vote per household.)
You can also vote by dropping an official paper ballot — available at the register or on Page 3 of the print version of this Shuttle — in the voting boxes at any of our three main stores. In-store ballots must be cast by noon Sunday, April 29.
You may also mail your ballot to the Leadership Committee, Weavers Way Co-op, 559 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119. Mail-in ballots must be received by Saturday, April 28.
Paper ballots will also be accepted at the Spring 2018 General Membership Meeting on Sunday, April 29, until 6 p.m. Online voting will be cut off at that time as well. We’ll tally and announce the results at the GMM.
We encourage you to vote early. We want to make sure we are on track for having enough votes for a valid election.
Now, more than ever, we know the importance of voting. Please exercise your right to vote!
Weavers Way Leadership Committee
