Lend Your Voice. Serve Your Community. Run for the Board of Directors!

Help shape the future of your co-op and run for a seat on the board of directors! This is an opportunity to serve your community and be a voice for change to support a more just, equitable food system. Mississippi Market Co-op’s Board of Directors is seeking candidates to fill three seats in our 2022 board election. 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. This is a volunteer position with a small monthly stipend in the form of store credit and a discount for all Mississippi Market locations. This year’s board election will begin in September, ending with the announcement of newly elected directors at our Annual Meeting on Oct. 27.

Board candidate applications are due July 31. A digital application is available at the bottom of this page. Please carefully read the board candidate information packet linked below prior to filling out the application.

Prior to being elected, each prospective board candidate must attend at least one board meeting or event. If you are interested in learning more, please attend one of our virtual board meetings or events.

Some of your responses to the questions below will appear in the election issue of Mississippi Market’s member newsletter and on our website. In the member newsletter, candidates’ responses may be edited due to space limitations. These responses will be the primary basis by which voters will evaluate candidates for election to the board of directors. Applications are not considered complete without a resume or summary of experiences. You will receive an email confirmation within three days of submitting your application.
