At the beginning of 2021, many of you took part in the GWG’s election of representatives. We would like to thank you for this – because by doing so you contribute to actively shaping life in our cooperative.
We would also like to thank the 70 elected representatives and the 20 substitute representatives. We look forward to your participation and we’re sure you will successfully guide the fate of GWG! We would be happy to introduce you to the elected representatives and substitute representatives as well as their duties
One of the most important advantages of GWG living: we are organized as a cooperative. This means that every member can play their part – by electing a representative. What duties do the representatives take on? They take on honorary fiduciary duties to our members and influence the development of our cooperative. At the representatives’ meeting, for example, the representatives adopt the annual financial statements and decide whether they agree with the work of the Committee and the Executive Board in the prior business year. The representatives are also responsible for considering how profits should be used.
With the election of its representatives, GWG has formed its new assembly of representatives. Together with the election board, we prepared, conducted, and evaluated the election in five meetings. Under the pandemic restrictions, we worked together to ensure its correct implementation. Special thanks go to the Election Board and our employees for their outstanding performance in this election of representatives. I wish all the representatives good luck in their term of office.
