Thank you to all those who attended the virtual AGM of the Saskatoon Co-op on May 18! It was a stunning success because of your participation in the passing of resolutions and electing of the CM4F-endorsed Board candidates.
Co-op Members for Fairness is endorsing three (and only three) strong Board candidates who need your support: Tajinder Grewal, Yvonne Hanson and Pat Atkinson. We can get them elected and our progressive resolutions passed – but it’s important that you read the voting strategy in this post.
Pat Atkinson is extremely well-qualified to serve as a Board member for the Saskatoon Co-Op, having had decades of experience as a Minister in several different government portfolios, as well as a trainer teacher helping citizens to improve knowledge and skills in financial accountability and good governance.
Yvonne’s strong lifelong foundation in co-operative values and practices, rural farming roots, her leadership of several local organizations including CHEP, Station 20 West, and ideas for growing our Co-op make her an ideal candidate for the Saskatoon Co-op Board.
Tajinder’s work in the agriculture and food industry, background in farming, and love for and service to the Saskatoon community make him an ideal candidate for the Saskatoon Co-op Board. We are thrilled to endorse Tajinder as a board candidate in the upcoming Saskatoon Co-op AGM.
The deadline to register for the Saskatoon Co-op’s AGM is May 1 (this Saturday). Unlike in previous years’ practice, where you could show up to the AGM with your Co-op member card and attend, you will only be given an opportunity to vote for Co-op Members for Fairness endorsed candidates’ slate (Pat Atkinson, Tajinder Grewal […]
Saskatoon Co-op members have another opportunity to restore our co-op to the Co-operative Values and Principles. Four Board positions are open for election: three sitting members, and one vacancy. Board terms are for three years for three of the positions, and one year for one of the positions. This creates a vital opportunity to have […]
Aside from electing Pat Atkinson, another major reason it’s crucial for Co-op members to register and attend is that the Board will be putting forward a resolution proposal at the 2020 AGM. We have some thoughts about why this Board Proposal should be rejected.
Greetings, Co-op Members for Fairness participants and sympathizers— we are aware that it has been some time before the last update, and have a lot to fill you in on related to the upcoming AGM and our endorsed candidates.
The Saskatoon Co-op 2020 AGM meeting is virtual and requires your advance registration by Sept. 30, 2020.
