Bylaws are our principal guide; the “rule book” that sets the overall governance of our Cooperative. The Bylaws set forth provisions which serve to protect our original purpose and mission. They define, control and set the basic principles and manner by which our Cooperative will be operated. “We the People” is the essence of our Bylaws – we, the citizens of Powhatan, by membership, are the owners and elect our leadership who will oversee the operation of our Cooperative to serve its members and our community.
Please find our Bylaws here, as they are embedded from our current draft on Google Drive and available for your review. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. A PDF version is available for you to download. This draft will be reviewed several more times at our small group workshops before a Board Resolution is called to officially adopt the Bylaws.
