Run for Our Board of Directors!
It’s time for the North Coast Co-op Board of Directors annual election period! Our Co-op is governed by a seven-person board of directors that includes two employee-directors and five general-directors. This year there are two open general-director seats. Would you like to serve on the board of directors? Read on!
We encourage any members interested in serving on the board to attend board and committee meetings now so that you’ll have a good understanding of how the board works and knowledge of current topics of discussion. If you are interested in running for the board of directors, here are some things you need to know.
Board members must:
- Commit to a three-year term;
- Regularly attend board meetings;
- Attend quarterly Finance Committee meetings and serve on at least one additional committee of choice. Stay informed about committee matters and prepare for meetings (8-10 hours per month);
- Build a working relationship with fellow board members.
As a board member, you represent the membership of North Coast Co-op. You will help guide policy and create change that will better align the Co-op with the goals of our strategic plan.
If you are interested in running for the board of directors, you must fill out a candidate application packet. Application packets are available at Customer Service and online. Application packets must be completed and returned by August 3.
