As of Sunday, June 21st, 57 out of the 128 member-owners of the High Five Co-op elected the following Board Directors:
  • Laura Barbrick
  • Jorel Van Os
  • Jim Jones
  • Joshua Smith
  • Nick Duesbery
  • Cynthia Cooper
  • Doug Petteys
Eric Pell and Gregg Hampshire are the remaining two Directors of the High Five Board. Eric and Gregg were exempt from this year’s election, since they were elected to two-year terms at last year’s election.

We want to thank everyone that joined us at our 2015 Members’ Assembly and all the member-owners that participated in this year’s election! We’re very excited to welcome Cynthia, Doug, and Nick to our Board and look forward to making some great strides with them.

voteThe 2015 board elections are now live. Elections will take place online via electronic ballot. On June 7, all member-owners were sent an email to their address on file with the co-op. The email contains a link to vote for up to seven candidates. Every member-owner has an equal vote. Voting will close at 11:59 PM EST on June 21st. The four candidates who receive the most votes will serve two year terms, while the next three will serve one year terms. After the election has closed and the winners have been announced, the new board of directors will vote among themselves to determine who will serve as President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Each candidate was asked to affirm their desire and eligibility to run for the board and to answer five questions. Their answers are given in their own words at the following page:  https://www.beer.coop/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/High-Five-2015-Candidate-Questionnaires.pdf

If you are a member-owner and did not receive the email with a link to vote, please contact board@nullbeer.coop.

You’re invited to the High Five Co-op’s 3rd Annual Members’ Assembly! This is our biggest party of the year, where we attempt to bring all of our fellow members-owners and friends together under one roof in support of our own co-op brewery in the making. This year’s event will be held at local West Michigan Farmlink headquarters, 1111 Godfrey, Suite S250 Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

Each year we take this opportunity to present our progress as a board to the membership, as well as hold open forum among all. We also kick off our official board election at this event (we’ll get more into that if you’re interested in running).

Other sweet stuff going on at our Annual Members’ Assembly include:

  • Tasting of our Brewers Committee prototype beers
  • Nacho bar featuring a sampling of food from our proposed menu
  • Friends and Family Sixer Mixer
  • Contest for favorite beer contributions to mixer
  • Live music from local musicians (TBA)
  • Speeches from running board of director candidates
  • Lot’s of awesome people drinking great beer together
