Elections at KOOP Radio
KOOP Radio is a cooperatively owned and operated organization also known as a co-op. As outlined in our Bylaws, our Board of Directors (BoD), Community Council (CC) and Programming Committee (PC) are comprised of individuals who have expressed a desire to serve on these bodies and have been elected by the membership to serve terms via our Annual Election.
All KOOP elections are administered by the KOOP Elections Oversight Committee.
KOOP’s Annual Election
The Annual Election is held in mid-October with terms beginning on November 1st and lasting one or two years depending on the nature of the vacancies. The election and the list of candidates running for each body are generally announced at the monthly station-wide meeting held prior to the beginning of the Annual Election and includes an informal forum where candidates are able to introduce themselves to the membership, communicate their motivation to serve and answer questions from the membership.
All KOOP elections are administered via an online ballot that is available in English and Spanish and that contains links to each candidate’s bios and statements of motivation.
