- Our Election Process
As a cooperative, we’re committed to good governance and we rely on our members to help build the cooperative that serves them. Our election process starts with the member-elected Nominating Committee identifying, qualifying, and nominating candidates for both the Nominating Committee and open Director Seats for upcoming terms. Our Voting Stockholders then receive a ballot by mail that can be returned or completed online. For more on the election process, Director roles, and eligibility, please view our AgSouth Bylaws.
