Mississippi Market’s board of directors consists of seven to nine elected member-owners, chosen by the membership, who are legally responsible for the overall direction and performance of our co-op. The board ensures our co-op continually achieves our ends statements pertaining to cooperative ownership, food access, fair pricing, education, and financial sustainability. One of the perks of co-op membership is the ability to apply to run for an open board seat. Each October, co-op member-owners elect new board members for three-year terms. This is an exciting opportunity to serve your community and lead your co-op in shaping our collective future. Unable to commit to full board service but still wish to serve? Volunteer on the board’s Audit Committee or take part in the Governance Committee’s board-slating process for new board candidates.
