If you have questions regarding your eligibility, contact Member-Owner Coordinator Yevette Buddeau at or 482-2667 Extension 104 three days PRIOR to the meeting to confirm that your name is on the voting list.   

A successful Co-op depends on the active support and participation of the membership.  Member-Owner participation is the most significant part of our ability to successfully govern the Co-op.  Our bylaws require a quorum to start the meeting and vote.   

We encourage you to come out and be a part of the Co-op discussion.  Get involved and vote. 

If you would like assistance in arranging carpooling contact Yevette Buddeau at or 482-2667 Extension 104 by January 16, 2020.

Guidelines for voting:  Once a quorum is reached (no official business can be conducted until we have adequate representation of eligible voters) the meeting will be called to order.  At that time, the agenda will proceed in the order shown above.

A ballot box for each vote will be opened at the end of each presentation.  Ballot boxes, once opened, will remain open until the meeting is adjourned.

Orientation Meetings:

For those who wish to offer time and skills to Honest Weight, orientations are held several times each month, and are about three hours long. The Co-op will make a personal appointment for you if you cannot make any of our regularly scheduled orientations, or if you are a person with special needs who would be better served by a private orientation.

Orientation schedules may be found at the Service Desk or you may request one by emailing Please stop by or call the Service Desk at 518-482-2667 x 270 to register.  To request a private appointment, please email the Member-Owner Coordinator at
