The Cooperative Election Handbook compiles findings from our years of experience and shares how by making elections the best they can be, cooperatives can create the perfect opportunity to engage members while demonstrating good governance.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Cooperatives around the country are realizing the benefits of engaging elections: improved member satisfaction, greater participation, increased transparency, and cost savings. But until now, there hasn’t been a resource that defined the essentials of a well-run election and the required steps for executing successful voting.
Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) addresses this issue in its new publication the Cooperative Election Handbook. Through the handbook, SBS examines: how to meet today’s election challenges, common election misconceptions, strategies for boosting participation, and best practices of successful voting events.
“Between the relationships we have established and our knowledge of the cooperative market, we have become aware of the industry’s election challenges,” states Jon Westerhaus, President of SBS. “Due to our distinct position as a provider of election services to cooperatives, we feel it is our duty to share what we have learned. The Cooperative Election Handbook compiles findings from our years of experience and shares how by making elections the best they can be, cooperatives can create the perfect opportunity to engage members while demonstrating good governance.”
The Cooperative Election Handbook is a free resource published by SBS. To learn more about the eBook and to download the PDF, visit: http://www.surveyandballotsystems.com/resource-library/resources/outsourced-elections-ebook/.
