The bylaws of Columbia REA contain the rules and procedures for governing the Cooperative. These bylaws may be revised periodically by a vote of the membership at annual meetings. It is important for you to be familiar with these bylaws so that you can participate in the governance of your cooperative. One of the primary opportunities for your participation in the governance of the Cooperative is at the Annual Membership meeting. This meeting is held each year between March 1st and April 30th. Announcement of the meeting is published in advance in the Columbia REA Annual Report, through a mailing to each member and in the local newspapers. The meeting is a time to hear news about Columbia REA activities, vote for board members, vote on other items needing member action, and to share a meal and socialize with fellow members. The meal and door prizes are complimentary to members who attend the meeting.If you need a copy of the bylaws mailed to you please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
