Board of Directors Overview:

 

The Whole Earth Market Board of Directors is a 9 person governing body consisting of co-op members that are elected on a rolling basis at the annual meeting in March each year. Board members have a fiduciary duty to the success of WE Market Co-op and they have a responsibility to represent the members and their interests in our co-op.

 

The Board of Directors has adopted a Policy Governance business model to guide their actions. The model allows the board to stay focused on three main areas:

 

  • Setting long term goals and organizational limits

  • Supporting and holding the General Manager accountable for organizational performance

  • Creating an open and active dialog with member regarding the strategic direction of the co-op

The Policy Governance model maintains operational decisions in the hands of the General Manager. The Board of Directors defines the policies and the General Manager reports back to the board monthly on their compliance of the applicable policy.

Board members have a voice in shaping the future of the co-op while working with a group of people who share a commitment to a democratic process and a sustainable local economy.
