Call for Board Nominations

CWCF is seeking nominations for its board of directors.  Serving on the CWCF Board is a great opportunity to help guide the worker co-op movement in this country and for networking with other worker co-operators.  To be eligible to run, you must be a worker-member of a CWCF Regular Member (worker co-op or multi-stakeholder co-op with substantial worker control), or be nominated by a Regional Federation (currently only in Quebec).  To reflect its commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion, CWCF encourages nominations from equity-seeking groups.

There are four seats available, starting at the 2021 AGM:

  • BC/Yukon Director (3-year term)
  • Ontario Director (3-year term)
  • Quebec Director (3-year term)
  • At-large Director (2-year term, currently vacant)

Nominations are requested by October 29th, but are open up to and including on the floor of the AGM.   Nominations can be sent to the Nominating Committee Chair Evan Proven, copying Hazel Corcoran.

Seeking Worker Co-op Award Nominations

CWCF is seeking nominees for two awards:  the Worker Co-op Best Practices Award, and the Mark Goldblatt Worker Co-op Merit Award.  The Worker Co-op Best Practices Award goes to a worker co-operative which has demonstrated best practices in governance and/or operations, including in upholding the values and principles of the co-operative movement within their co-operative, and has shared, or is willing to share their experience and learnings with other worker co-operatives in Canada. The Worker Co-op Merit Award, named in honour the late Mark Goldblatt, goes to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to worker co-operation in Canada.  More information is available at this link. Nominations for both awards can be submitted to Hazel Corcoran, and the deadline is October 29th.
