2022 Reincorporation/Merger Vote

The purpose of this membership vote and special meeting is to change our Co-op's legal state of incorporation from Ohio to Michigan, which in turn is needed to optimize our funding options for the proposed relocation and expansion of the store. A membership meeting and vote is required by Ohio law.

The only way that our Co-op can become a Michigan corporation is by having the Board form a brand new corporation (a consumer cooperative) under Michigan law and then asking membership to merge our current corporation (an Ohio cooperative association) with that new Michigan corporation.

Leading up to this vote, the Board of Directors formed that new Michigan Co-op and approved the merger for both our current Ohio Corporation and the new Michigan Corporation, the terms of which are reflected in the Agreement and Plan of Merger included below. If approved by membership (and according to the terms of the merger), the Michigan corporation will fully absorb the Ohio corporation and the Ohio corporation will then cease to exist.

This change is largely a technical matter, albeit with some changes due to differences in state laws and new Bylaws prepared by the Board of Directors in accordance with Michigan requirements. For more details, please see the supporting materials links, available below.
