UPDATE: 2018 Board Election

The Board of Directors is comprised of volunteer member-owners who oversee operations, set long-term goals and policies, and work closely with the general manager to ensure that YFC is thriving and meeting our commitment to the community!

A core principle of cooperatives all over the world, and especially for YFC, is democratic member control! Part of this democratic process is member-owners voting for the YFC Board of Directors and it is time once again to vote!

This year we have five available positions and seven candidates: Aaron Bedell, Don Broersma , Leaha Dotson, Celeste McClellan, Tessa Sarapo, Steve Somers and Stefani Stauffer!

In store voting is available May 15th ,2018 through May 24th, 2018 at 4pm, and voting is also available at the May 29, 2018 Annual General Membership Meeting at 6pm at the Ypsilanti Freighthouse!
