Meet The Board

Your Board of Directors has an essential role in supporting the growth of Main Market Coop!

They act as the voice of the membership and serve as the governing body of the Coop, not running daily operations but setting policy and vision for how the store meets our members' needs now and in the future.

The Main Market Board has nine available seats. Each Director is elected to a 3-year term.

Call for 2018 Board Candidates!

Serving on the Board of Directors is an opportunity to engage more deeply with the financial and development pieces of running a cooperatively owned business. As a Director, you represent the Member/Owners and work closely with fellow Directors and the General Manager. An elected term is 3-years long and Directors meet monthly for two hours, more or less depending on the agenda. The Board may also form committees to take on specific work or projects in their purview. The minimum commitment is to attend the monthly meetings, to be prepared for the meetings by reading all of the materials provided ahead of time, to be engaged, and inspired to help grow our vibrant and diverse community! You will receive training and support throughout your term so passion is just as valuable as experience; no experience necessary. However, you do need to be a Member/Owner in good standing!

Are you feeling the call? Find the application here!

Application deadline is March 2, 2018. Once you have submitted your application you will be contacted by the Board Nominating Committee with further steps
