Becoming a Director

At this meeting, all current Directors will resign from their positions and elections will be held to fill the places. The Co-op has 5 Directors, including a Secretary and a Treasurer.

Nominees must be active members of the Co-op (annual subs up-to-date and have shopped at the Co-op at least once in the past 12 months) and must be at least 18 years old.

The role is voluntary and you will be entitled to a Permanent Volunteer discount for the duration of your time as Director. See here for information about being a Director, and here for our description of the role.

Nomination procedures:

  1. Provide a notice in writing consenting to your nomination. This must be signed by you.
  2. Ensure your nomination is signed by 2 or more members.
  3. Provide brief details of your qualifications and experience. Include length of previous service as a director of any other co-operative, if applicable.
  4. Lodge your nomination with one of the current Directors in person, or to members@flametree.coop, or send to PO Box 178, Thirroul 2515.

The election will take place at the AGM. If there are exactly 5 nominees, then the nominees will be automatically elected. If there are more than 5 nominees, then a ballot will be held. If there are less than 5 nominees, then those nominees will be elected and nominations for people to fill the remaining vacancies shall be called from the floor and a ballot held if required.

We hope to see you there!
