As a cooperative business, Food Front is overseen by a Board of Directors elected directly by its Owners. The Board represents the Owners. It creates a vision for co-op alignment with the International Cooperative Alliance Statement of Cooperative Identity and provides the co-op with strategic leadership. The Board ensures sound management of the co-op’s resources and safeguards the interests of our Owners. The Board is not involved in the daily operations of either store.
At the discretion of the Board and Owners, Board Members may receive nominal remuneration in exchange for their volunteer services. Current board stipends are paid in the form of a Food Front gift card in the following amounts:
President - $200
Vice President - $150
Treasurer & Secretary - $150
Board Member - $100
Training, travel, and professional development opportunities are regularly available.
Every fall, co-op Owners elect candidates to the co-op’s Board of Directors. Voting in Board elections ensures that the co-op’s development is compatible with your vision. For more information on Board elections, call 503-222-5658 x133 or email us at email@example.com.
Interested in serving on Food Front's Board of Directors? We encourage all co-op owners interested in the governance of Food Front to apply to become a member of the Board. The first step is to attend a Board meeting and talk with the Nominations Committee chair to learn more about the application and election process. Serving on the Board is a great way to connect with other passionate co-op leaders! We collaborate and cooperate to lead Food Front into the future, enjoy serving co-op owners, and participate in various Board development activities. For further information, please contact:
