Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is a group of up to 11 member/owners whose responsibility is to oversee co-op operations and make major policy decisions. This group has the legal responsibility to ensure the well-being of the co-op. The Board supervises the General Manager of the store who is responsible for carrying out board policies at the stores including issues relating to staff.
Board members are elected to two year terms and one-half of the Board is up for election every year at the annual meeting. Board members receive a 15% discount at our stores for their service to the co-op. The Board meets at least once a month, generally on the second Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are open to co-op members.
Agendas of board meetings are posted on the co-op store's bulletin boards and on the website one week prior to each scheduled meeting. The agenda for December's meeting is here.
The most recent board meeting minutes are posted in both stores and available in PDF form here (October 2013).
Special meetings may be called as necessary by the Board, or by a petition submitted by at least ten percent of co-op members. At this time our co-op has about 2,250 members.
Board members may be contacted via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving mail in their boxes in the office at Green Fields Market.
