Notice To Members Notice Of Adjournment Of Annual Meeting And Election March 24, 2020
18 March 2020
The Board of Directors at a duly called meeting held on March 13, 2020, determined that the annual meeting of members scheduled to take place on March 24, 2020, shall be adjourned for not more than 90 days due to the Governor's State of Emergency Declaration and recommendation of state and federal health authorities that large gatherings should be avoided in order to mitigate and reduce the chances of exposure to COVID-19.
The Board based its decision upon WHO's declaration that COVID-19 is now a Pandemic, review of current CDC recommendations for the American public, and those declarations announced to the American public by the President of the United States on March 11, 2020. The Board conferred with the cooperative attorney in advance of this decision and determined that it is in the best interests of the health, safety, and wellness of each Cooperative member and his/her family members residing with him/her, that the annual meeting be adjourned.
The Board will continue to monitor this evolving public health concern and will revisit the appropriateness of setting the date and time for the adjourned annual membership meeting and will promptly notify the membership of the new date and time.
