Join us for an online event to meet the candidates for Chicago Market's upcoming 2020 Board of Directors election! The event will be a hosted panel discussion with the candidates and a chance for Owners to get to know who will be running for the open Board seats. Jen Vest, past Chicago Market Board Member, will moderate and field questions from the Owners for the candidates.
Our election will take place through an online voting tool and begins immediately after the Annual Meeting on Sunday, August 30th. This is YOUR Co-op...
