Board of Directors to appoint new board member

This is a critical time for leadership at Columbus Food Co-op. Your board of directors is working hard on your behalf on several fronts to secure a new location and funding so we can get our store open. To do this, we need a full board of people who have the time and passion to be part of a working board at this time. Your democratically elected board will be accepting applications for board appointees at this time so we can keep moving forward on all fronts to get this store open! All appointed board members will be up for re-election during the co-op's next election cycle in November. 

Our board meets on the first and third Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Commons. Typically, we only meet on the third Wednesday, but through August we decided to add the meeting on the first Wednesday as we have so many issues to address.

In addition to board meetings, we have an array of events at which it is helpful for board members to attend. The list includes:

  • Annual meeting
  • Member update meetings
  • Farm market
  • Service group presentations
  • Volunteer recruiting & training meetings
  • Tabling at various events
  • Annual Street Fair
