Board of Trustees
The Co-op is governed by a Board of Trustees (BOT), a dedicated, passionate group of volunteers. All trustees are democratically elected to act on behalf of the ownership. to set strategic plans for the Co-op’s future, and to ensure that the Co-op remains fiscally sound and operating within the cooperative principles. Curious to see where we’re headed? Check out the Board’s 2013 Vision statement.
Each year the Co-op holds elections for the Board of Trustees. If you are a current member-owner and would like to learn more about running for the BOT, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are ready to submit your Candidate Application, do so here.
