What does a board member do (and why)?
A cooperative is owned by its members. The owners elect and empower a board of directors to make governance decisions on their behalf and act in their best interest. In turn, the Board empowers a general manager by setting and monitoring policies that determine the direction of the Co-op.
The authority of the board belongs to the whole, that is, while individual directors can work to persuade and influence the board in its deliberations and decision-making, ultimately the board speaks with one voice, expressed through written policy. Application Deadline is September 1st
