What is the Board of Directors and what does it do?

The Board of Directors is the governing body for the co-owners of the Boise Co-op. It is composed of nine co-owners, elected by co-owners. Terms for directors range from one to three years as needed to ensure no more than three terms are scheduled to expire every year.

The Board is responsible for ensuring organizational performance on behalf of the Boise Co-op’s co-owners. This work includes developing clearly stated expectations through written policies; delegating responsibility for, and authority over, the achievement of stated objectives; and monitoring compliance with written policies.

The Board is a strategic and visionary body with a view toward the future of our cooperative, rather than focusing on the short term.
