Being a cooperative means that PTCI adheres to the 7 Cooperative Principles to guide our business. Today we are going to highlight the 2nd Cooperative Principle: Democratic Member Control.
Cooperatives are made up of member owners who help steer the cooperative’s direction by voting for representative Board Members from each of the cooperative’s districts. Members can also vote on proposed by-law changes, if any, during PTCI’s Annual Meeting.
PTCI members are invited to both the District and Annual Meetings so they may exercise their voting rights within the cooperative.
To run for election to the PTCI Board of Trustees, notify PTCI during the filing period. Trustees shall each be elected at their district meetings to serve a 3 year term. To see if you meet the requirements to run, check PTCI’s Cooperative Bylaws on our website or page 37 of the phone book.
