Weaver Street Market seeks board candidates who are dedicated to the cooperative and its mission, to run in board elections. Two seats are open for election each year—one consumer-owner seat and one worker-owner seat. Applications are due in early summer, and the election begins in late summer.
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.
A call for candidates with the application is published on our website in English, here.

The EC is a standing a standing committee approved by the Board that comprises five to seven consumer owners and worker owners. The elections are conducted according to the Elections Procedure Manual, which the EC submits each year to the Board for approval. Click here to view the 2019 Elections Procedures Manual.
