The Mississippi Market board of directors is a policy governance board. Co-op board members have the same duties as directors of any business. The unique identity of our cooperative also means that the board must act on behalf of our member-owners. The board does not engage in operational decisions at the store level but is legally responsible for the overall direction and performance of the co-op.

One of the perks of co-op membership is applying 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. There are also opportunities to serve on ad-hoc committees as a member-owners. Learn more by submitting a board interest request, and we’ll get back to you with additional details.
