Elected by the membership, cooperative directors are also members, but with a special perspective. Their responsibilities include planning and policy oversight, setting the long-term objectives of the co-op and providing the resources to meet those objectives. Their commitment includes monthly meetings to review progress and make strategic decisions as well as staying current on an increasingly complex business.
Your board members work closely with the CEO/GM and senior staff to monitor results of co-op projects and assure accountability. Each board member represents a specific district, but is always concerned with the interests of all co-op members.
