Upper Valley Food Co-op Seeking Board Members

supporting our local economy? In democratic control of businesses? Our
member owned food co-op, located across from the Bugbee Senior Center in
White River Junction, invites you to become a candidate to join our board
of directors this fall. (Applications are due August 6th.)
What does a board member do?
The Board oversees policy, directs the vision, and represents our Co-op in
the cooperative world. The building and the store itself are managed
completely by staff – they’re the experts! The Board has established
policies and a calendar to ensure that obligations to the Co-op members and
the staff are fulfilled. Individual Directors represent the collective
membership and guide the cooperative to benefit our community. We also
learn a lot from each other, enjoy delicious foods, tell stories, and have
fun. Terms are three years.
