Meet our Board of Directors

From the beginning, one of the main principles of operating Co-ops has been the importance of democratic control, whereby a Co-op’s Board of Directors’ serve as the elected representatives of the membership— ensuring that members’ voices are heard and that the core values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity are upheld. The Board of Directors of our Co-op are deeply involved in ensuring the Co-op’s success and longevity, taking into account the Co-op’s original vision and it’s ability to contribute to our community. Each member is driven and insightful and alots important time out of their calendar each month to spend on brainstorming new strategies for progress.
