Cooperative Board Election: Member and Board Elections for Cooperatives

The structure and nature of a cooperative mean that elections and hierarchies work very differently from other organizations in terms of ownership, decision-making, and contributions to key policies. Co-op organizations have founding principles and guidelines that members agree to when they join. These rules and bylaws will dictate the processes by which board members are elected, normally with equal voting rights between members and with no right of veto, ensuring the business is entirely equitable.
