The Co-op Board of Directors is elected by the membership and is responsible for directing the activities of the Co-op according to by-laws and co-operative legislation. The Board establishes the mission of the Co-op, formulates and implements policy, supervises and appraises the CEO, and Directors serve on a number of sub-committees, always remaining accountable to our membership.

Over the years, our Co-op has seen tremendous growth, and as we continue to grow, it is extremely important that our Board has the skills and background to ensure that the best interests of the Co-op are met.
