Board of Directors Nominee Statements

Gene Wood

I’m looking forward to continuing to help sustain IO Coop and serve
the membership as a board member.

Troy Arnold

I will continue to regularly attend meetings of the board and do my
small part to help keep things running for the cooperative.

Chris Haumesser

After more than a decade with this group of ethical hackers, I’m
still here and going strong. Please get in touch if you have ideas
about building our community or collaborating on interesting
projects to advance our agenda.

Kevin Bullock

I’ve been on the board now for two years and happy to have the
chance to continue. I’ve been involved in prior incarnations of IO
Co-op going back to Cologeeks (which became our MSP01 location). By
day I write code and orchestrate deployments for Software for Good,
a consulting shop in Minneapolis. I look forward to finding ways to
get you more engaged with the Co-op’s work and strengthen the

Gary Peck

I’ve been on the board since we got IO Coop off the ground (and a
Cernian before then). It’s been great to see the coop become
self-sustaining and operating more like a real coop than a one-man
shop. Going forward I hope we can get more members involved in the
coop’s operations and making sure we continue to serve members’
needs as they evolve past just physical colocation.

By order of the Board of Directors,

Gene Wood, President/CEO
Gary Peck, Member of the Board

This notice of Annual Meeting is being distributed and made available
on or about July 24, 2015.
