Watch Allan's video above and hear more about our elections and AGM process. You can also read his welcome below.
Last year signalled an historic change in the way your co-operative is run. Now you have an opportunity to play a part in the next stage of our journey of recovery.
As a co-op we want you to have a big say in how we do business. It’s how the co-op pioneers began their work in 1844 and it’s how we want to continue today.
You can vote for member candidates standing for election to our Group Board and also the representatives who will join our new national Members’ Council. The Board sets our strategic direction and the Council will ensure the Board’s decisions are made accountable to all our members and that our co-operative values are upheld.
You can also vote on motions to be put to our Annual General Meeting taking place in Manchester on Saturday 16 May.
Listening to you means we can make a difference to where you live and what’s important to you. So, please do take a few minutes to explore our voting site, use your vote and make sure your voice is heard.
Thank you for being a member and for supporting a different way of doing business.
Chair, The Co-operative Group
