Bylaws

The Bylaws set out the terms of Co-op membership, election and duties of the Board of Directors, duties of officers, duties of the General Manager, and meetings of the membership. The bylaws are set by the Board of Directors and changes are approved by a vote of the membership.

Articles

The Articles of Incorporation set out the business structure and purpose of the Co-op. They also set out how the Co-op is capitalized (through the equity payments of member-owners), and they empower the Board of Directors to draft and amend bylaws.

Annual Report

Each year the Co-op releases a report around the time of the annual member meeting. This report includes a report from the GM, the balance sheet, and an income statement compared to previous years. The annual report gives member-owners an opportunity to track the Co-op’s progress over time.

Board Policy Register

Open Harvest’s Board of Directors uses a formal system known as policy governance to establish a structure for its work. The Policy Register is the document which sets out the details of how we apply policy governance. The Register describes the roles and responsibilities of the Board, and the methods it uses to oversee the co-op.

Board Meeting Agenda & Minutes

The Open Harvest Board of Directors meets at 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM on the first Wednesday of each month at The Foundry, 211 N. 14th Street in Lincoln. Meetings are open to all member-owners who wish to attend. If you would like to suggest an item for the agenda, or to express your viewpoint on an issue coming before the board, please contact Board Chair Megan Jackson at board@openharvest.coop before the next scheduled meeting. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the holiday, the July Board Meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 10th.
