As a local cooperative, we are governed by a Board of Directors elected by our member-owners through a nomination and voting process at the cooperative’s annual meeting, which is held each January. The directors provide leadership and a vision for the cooperative’s leadership and employee team to carry out. The Board of Directors are a crucial factor in the success of their co-op. They must clearly understand their role to effectively serve the member-owners who elected them.

There are five key areas in which board members are involved:

  1. Leadership/Planning

  2. Legal Responsibility

  3. Financial Analysis

  4. Controls

  5. Communication
