Karen Mischel-BODHello VFC Owners! Can you believe it’s time to start talking elections again? This has been an incredibly busy and successful year for the Co-op. I speak for the Board of Directors when I say we are so very proud of the dedicated work that has been done to get us to where we are. People are taking note of what we’ve done here, and it’s all because of the exceptional leadership and teamwork that is in practice every single day at the VFC.

Those successes can also be attributed in part to our owner-members. We need your support to keep it all going! So here’s where you come in. Now that the expansion is complete, it’s time to start looking forward to what’s next. How do we maintain this momentum that we’ve built and continue to offer the quality people have come to expect? As the Board, we need dedicated members on our team, too.

This autumn, there are three open seats on the VFC Board. Each one serves a 3-year term. If you have any questions about running for the Board, find more about the position – and contact me directly by going to this page on our website:

There are three qualifications to become a Board candidate:

  • Ownership paid in full and in applicant's name
