Running for the Board

Trico Members elect fellow Members to represent them on the co-op's Board. One representative is elected from each of the seven director districts.

The Trico Board of Directors is an integral part of Trico’s business operations. The board makes financial, strategic, and other key decisions for the co-op.

Each year, two to three seats come up for election. Any Trico Member can run for one of these seats, provided they reside or operate a business in the district up for election that year. To run for election to the Board, each candidate is required to complete a Candidate Bio and a Nomination Petition. You must obtain 30 signatures from Members running in the District you wish to represent.
