One of the perks of co-op membership is the ability to apply for an open board seat. The board determines the long-range vision for the co-op, provides financial oversight, and sets policies to guide the general manager in achieving our strategic priorities. Our board is currently seeking candidates to run in the 2019 board election. Three open seats for the 2019-2022 election term are open to new candidates. Apply now for your chance to serve your community. Help shape your co-op’s future!
