Run for the Board of Directors!

Leah Stamper, Board President

It’s time for the North Coast Co-op Board of Directors annual election period! Our co-op is governed by a seven-person board of directors that includes two employee-directors and five member-directors. This year there is one vacant employee-member seat to be filled and two member-owner seats. Would you like to serve on the board of directors? Read on!

Attendance and participation at board meetings has been high and we would love to see this continue into the election cycle. Any member-owner able to meet the responsibilities of a board member is eligible to run. If you are interested in running for the board of directors, here are some things you need to know. Board members must:

  • Commit to a three-year term.

  • Regularly attend board meetings.

  • Serve on the Finance Committee.

  • Stay informed about committee matters and prepare for meetings (8-10 hours per month).

  • Build a working relationship with fellow board members.

  • Actively participate in the committees’ annual evaluation, planning efforts and relevant North CoastCo-op events.

  • Serve on committees.

As a board member, you represent the membership of North Coast Co-op. You will help guide policy and create change that will better align the Co-op with the goals of our strategic plan.  

If you are interested in running for the Board of Directors, you must fill out a candidate application packet. Packets are available at Customer Service and online. Candidate application packets must be completed and returned by July 24.
