You Hold the Power to Guide Us

In accordance with the International Cooperative Principles, Mississippi Market is run by democratic member control. As a member-owner, you’re able to choose new co-op leadership during our annual board election.

Take your membership to the next level by voting for up to four candidates in this year’s election. Four open board seats are available—Natalie Kennedy stepped down earlier this year, leaving her seat open with a one-year term; Camille Bryant, Katie Colón and Matt Frank are stepping down after their respective first terms.

The co-op members you elect to the board will review and establish policies that guide management in their work, monitor the performance of our general manager, develop a long-range vision for the co-op’s future, and provide financial oversight of business operations. The Mississippi Market Board of Directors is a policy governance board, meaning they do not engage in operational decisions at the store level. Instead, they are legally responsible for the overall strategic direction and performance of our co-op.

Join us for an informative virtual event on Oct. 6 featuring the eight candidates running for the board of directors. They will speak about their backgrounds and qualifications for the board and also answer questions from current directors and members.

Voting begins Tuesday, September 29th. Check back then to place your vote!
