Meet the 2023 Oshkosh Food Co-op Board Candidates
Each year, three board positions are open for election. Generally, board members hold positions for three-year terms unless shortened due to vacancies. In the event of a vacancy, additional seats may be available for election.
Elections are held in the first half of every year. There are four seats to be filled through this election. As an Oshkosh Food Co-op member-owner, you may vote for up to four candidates. The top three vote-getters will serve a three-year term, while the candidate with the fourth highest number of votes will serve a one-year term.
