2022 Board Elections
Districts 5 and 6 are up for election!
Activities tied to the 2022 GVEA board elections are already gearing up. GVEA is preparing for the formation of Nominating Committees for Districts 5 and 6.
The deadline to submit a Nominating Committee application Friday, November 12, 2021.
Serving on a Nominating Committee is a great way to get involved with your co-op. It’s a relatively brief – yet vitally important – assignment, with the committees meeting several times between December 2021 and February 2022 as they seek to secure a minimum of two nominees for their district’s board election. Members serving on a Nominating Committee will be compensated $60 per meeting attended, plus standard mileage rates for travel should the committee decide to meet in person.
