Weaver Street Market seeks board candidates who are dedicated to the cooperative and its mission to run in this year’s board elections. Two seats are open for election each year—one consumer-owner seat and one worker-owner seat. All qualified owners are welcome to run. Our hope is to present Weaver Street owners with candidates possessing unique voices, experiences, and backgrounds. No specific experience is required to sit on our board – just a passion for changing the world through our co-op!
The board provides strategic leadership:
- Focusing on the big picture—envisioning how Weaver Street is different as a cooperative and what impact we make beyond other businesses.
- Listening carefully to consumer and worker owners and translating owner needs into a compelling vision.
- Engaging owners and potential owners in understanding Weaver Street’s mission as a co-op and providing ways for owners to drive co-op results through everyday behaviors and choices.
