Boise Co-op Board Seeking Applications


Now that Boise Co-op is making strides to become an actual, member-run co-op, it's also steering co-op leadership in a more democratic direction.

Three seats on the nine-member Boise Co-op board of directors are up for reelection this fall and the co-op is currently seeking members who would like to be considered for nomination to the board. Those elected at the co-op’s annual member meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 1, will serve through 2014.

According to the recently updated co-op bylaws, a board member "shall have been a member for at least six months prior to the election of directors, shall not be an employee of the co-op and shall not have any overriding conflict of interest with the co-op."

Applicants are asked to provide a recent resume, a written statement of interest, a description of relevant skills and talents and their Boise Co-op member number.

Applications are due by Friday, Sept. 9, and can be emailed to or dropped off at the co-op’s customer service counter in an envelope labeled “Boise Co-op Board of Directors Nominating Committee.”
