2018 Co-op Board of Directors Elections 

Board of Director elections are being held to coincide with the Co-op’s Annual Gathering at TMORA on May 17, 2018 from 1730-2030. 

The focus of the Annual Gathering is to celebrate and share what our Co-op has achieved in our first year and plant new seeds for the second year.

Our interim Board started the season with four broad objectives.

  • Provide enough bench time to guarantee a regular sauna session to every Member who wants one
  • Add new Members
  • Put the procedures, roles and structures in place to operate the co-op in the black
  • Hold an Election in April/May 2018 to supplement the Interim Board with fresh member leadership

We’re 3 for 4 at the moment. We need your help for #4!

The role of the 612 Sauna Society Board is to help structure and promote the co-operative and provide strategic support and guidance for our CFO, AdMN and Stoker teams. 

The term for a Board of Director seat is two years but a seat can be vacated following the first year. The Board meets monthly and there are several ongoing and as-needed subcommittees that are formed throughout the sauna season to forward the obligations of the Board.
