Today’s business world is complex and constantly changing. Electing a Board of Directors to oversee the business affairs of a $200 million petroleum and food co-operative is comparable to hiring a member of the senior executive team, such as the CEO. Being elected to the Board is a serious responsibility, as each Director’s decision has a profound influence on Peninsula Co-op’s future success.
