The Rogers Park Food Co-op is governed by an owner-elected Board of Directors.
The owners of the Rogers Park Food Co-op meet together annually to elect a nine-member Board of Directors. The board serves as the governing body for the co-op by representing the ownership at large in setting strategic policies to further the co-operative mission and vision.
All owners in good standing are eligible to run for a seat on the board. Directors are typically elected to serve 3-year terms with the exception of seats made vacant by incomplete terms.
Although there are many ways in which individuals may be involved with the RPFC through volunteering, committees, or special assignment, serving on the board is the highest level of commitment an owner can make to the co-op. The Board of Directors not only has an ethical duty to represent the owners in the best of their capacity, but the board has a legal fiduciary duty to do so.
Owners interested in learning more and running for an elected seat on the board may read the Board of Directors Candidate Information Packet and accompanying Timeline. Completed applications may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite all owners and community members to read these documents and consider serving in this grassroots, community-owned business.
