Create Positive Change: Run for the Board!

Help improve access to healthful, local foods and create a more just, equitable food system.

Once again, we are seeking candidates to run for Mississippi Market’s board of directors. This is an exciting opportunity for member-owners to serve the community while shaping our collective future. The board of directors set policy and governance parameters, monitor co-op performance, and act as the decision-making body for important issues such as our overall strategic direction.

Board applications may be picked up in-store and are also available digitally. The deadline to apply is Thursday, August 10th.

The board meets monthly as a whole, and each member sits on at least one committee. The average time commitment required for sitting board members is 10 hours per month and compensation is provided.

Board member diversity remains a top priority. Diversity of skills, mindsets, experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives make for a stronger decision-making body and ensures we are representative of the community we serve. Please join us in our efforts to bring cooperative values to St. Paul!

Not yet a co-op member? Joining is easy! To become a member-owner of Mississippi Market Co-op means choosing to follow a strong tradition – maintaining access to high quality food and other natural products, joining with neighbors to build a stronger community, and supporting a sustainable regional economy. All member-owners are eligible to run for a board seat and may also vote for new members.
