Board of Directors

Our board of directors is made up of local Co-op member-owners who are elected by co-op membership to volunteer to influence and design the Co-op’s vision for the future and outline policies for our Co-op to follow.

Board Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month, in conference room "A" of Miller Library, on the

WNMU campus.  Join us May 22nd,

from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. 

While the new store at 907 Pope Street is under construction, we will not have ZOOM available, but everyone is

welcome to attend in person!

Policy Governance

Similar to many other non-profit organizations, we follow a system of governance called policy governance, a model intended to focus boards on the essential, and to ensure that they did not cause their organizations to fail either through "micro-managing" or "rubber-stamping" their executive's decisions.
