Run For The Co-op Board of Directors

It has been a big year for the Co-op with Co-op Downtown off and running and many improvements at Co-op West Main. It is a great time to be an active part of this thriving cooperative business. Nominations are open for the 2012 Board of Directors Election in June.

Any interested member-owner who would like to participate in our growing cooperative business can apply for one of three open positions.

Nominations packets are available at the Customer Service desk at Co-op West Main and must be filed by March 30, 2012. Nominations packets contain all the instructions for filing.

Candidates must:

  • Attend at least one Board meeting (February 16 or March 22);
  • Review informational material and complete the nominations packet;
  • Arrange to meet with the Nominations and Process Committee to discuss your interest in the Board and answer any questions you might have about Board service.

Co-op Board of Directors oversee the General Manager, assure the fiscal well being of the organization, set policy and plan for the future of the Co-op, among other things.

As a director, you must commit to attendance and preparation for monthly board meetings (usually on the third Thursday of each month), participate in an annual weekend retreat, committee work, and related special assignments.

Service is rewarded with a 25% working member discount, as well as the camaraderie and satisfaction that comes with being an active part of our great and dynamic institution.
