Serving on the Board of Directors is a rewarding and essential way to shape the Co-op.
A cooperative is an independent association of persons united to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise. The Board is a primary means for this democratic control of the store, and is one of the fundamental ways in which we’re different from other grocery stores.
Our Board is composed of and elected by Co-op owners. The seven Board members act as trustees for the Co-op by providing direction and oversight regarding the Co-op’s financial well-being and long-term goals and by evaluating the General Manager’s performance. The Board creates and maintains policies for the store that help us put our values and vision into practice. The policies shape things such as our wages, our sustainability goals, and our relationships with local producers.
