Reincorporation

Reincorporation

Proposition 138 was introduced in the CT legislature to enhance the existing CT Co-operative statutes and encourage more co-ops to incorporate in our state. The bill was initiated by the Willimantic Food Co-op, Fiddleheads Co-op in New London and developed with the support of the Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA). It was passed by the CT House and Senate and signed into law by the Governor on June 26, 2019.

REINCORPORATION – WE NEED YOUR VOTE!

This is a very exciting time for our Food Co-op! We’ve been in business for over 42 years, and while we have happily been operating and acting like a cooperative, we’ve been legally incorporated as a Connecticut nonstock corporation. Now we have an opportunity to actually be a co-op! Along with a group of cooperators from our state and region, we’ve worked to make it possible for us to incorporate as a real cooperative in the state of Connecticut. The next step depends on you, our members.

We need your vote to make this a reality. The core of the cooperative business model is member democratic control, and this is an opportunity for you to make your voice heard about the future of our Co-op. We hope to hold the member vote early in 2023.

Becoming a real cooperative in our state would be a great thing. It would be something that sets us apart from all of the other for-profit corporations and highlights the success and importance of cooperatives as a business model that is well worth learning about and participating in. Ahead of the vote, please consider attending one of our upcoming member info sessions about the reincorporation process.

LET’S GET REAL!!!
