Board of Directors Application


The Elk River Area Food Co-op is governed by the Board of Directors who is elected by our owners. The Board’s role is to represent our members, to create and implement a vision for the co-op and develop policies that guide movement toward that vision. This is a “working” board. Directors are expected to assist with various tasks and/or needs, volunteer for at least two events throughout the year and attend monthly board meetings. Board directorship is an excellent way to participate in a dynamic and effective process that helps to support a successful cooperative venture.
