The CCOF Big Valley Chapter (BV Chapter) election voting period is open until Thursday, June 28. If you are part of the BV Chapter, make sure your voice is heard!
 
Your vote is vital to the member-driven democratic process of electing CCOF leadership. 
The CCOF Chapter Bylaws require a 10 percent quorum of chapter members for election purposes. The Big Valley Chapter currently has 189 members, which means we need 19 votes to fulfill a quorum.  A simple majority ratifies a vote.
 
 
Who is Eligible to Vote?
 
All currently-certified Big Valley chapter members are eligible to vote for this election. 
 
Why Vote?
 
The primary purposes of the CCOF chapter system are to further interests of CCOF members in Chapter’s geographic region and to ensure that CCOF members are represented at the governance level of the organization. The 14 current chapters form a representative democracy that elects the CCOF, Inc. Board of Directors. 
 
CCOF chapters are also important for building community and connection to CCOF. They offer opportunities to network and strengthen organic businesses, educational programming, and a connection to CCOF’s advocacy efforts for the organic sector. Chapter meetings provide a venue for CCOF members and the public to discuss concerns, questions, and ideas, plus develop or participate in leadership roles within the organic community and beyond.
