Election update: Letter to members

The letter below will be mailed to Class A members of MaxYield Cooperative June 1st.

June 1, 2014

Dear MaxYield Cooperative Members,

The governance process is one of the most important components of your cooperative’s success. The purpose of this letter is to inform our members of the approaching board of director elections and provide who you should contact if you are interested in seeking election to the board in each of the three regions.

In the east region (east of Hwy 17), Don Hejlik is seeking re-election.

Jim Black is seeking re-election in the central region (between Highway 4 and Highway 17).

In the west region (west of Highway 4) David Garrelts is seeking re-election.

Since an incumbent is seeking re-election in each region, no nominating committee will be formed. If you are interested in seeking election to the MaxYield board, please contact Chad Meyer, Client Relations/Communications director, at 800-383-0003 ext. 216 or cmeyer@MaxYieldCoop.com.

Three years ago, we adopted the new policy that if an incumbent wants to run for re-election, we will not form a nominating committee. While we no longer form a nominating committee in this instance, we welcome new candidates to run for the board and encourage you to consider this opportunity.

To be considered a candidate, candidates must:

  • Be a Class “A” member.
  • No criminal record (felonies)
  • A good credit history with MaxYield
  • History of a reasonable amount of business with MaxYield

The deadline to declare your intention to run for the board is August 31st 2014.


Howard Haas

Board Chairman
