Thank you to all our owners who participated in Durham Co-op Board Elections by running and voting. We love seeing our community take part in shaping the Co-op. We will announce new directors soon!
INTRODUCING OUR NEW BOARD MEMBERS
We are pleased to introduce this year’s new board members! A warm welcome to Zoey Best, Nina Drumgoole, Donna Frederick, and Lenore Ramm Hill as they join our Board of Directors.
NEW WORKER OWNER BOARD MEMBER
Durham Co-op is a hybrid consumer- and worker-owned co-op. That means employees can be owners and elect worker owner board members. Our worker owners elected Josh Collier to the Board. Josh joined the Board in February 2020 to fill an open worker owner seat and was up for reelection this year.
Thank you to all our owners who participated in Durham Co-op Board Elections by running and voting. We love seeing our community take part in shaping the Co-op and are already looking forward to next year!
Thanks to all who joined us at the Annual Owner’s Meeting! We had a great time gathering with you all.
If you were unable to attend the Annual Meeting, you can view a recap of the Co-op’s growth and continued work in the community in the Annual Report HERE.
ABOUT THE BOARD
The Co-op is governed by the board, and everyone on the board is a community member or staff member and a Co-op owner. Anyone who is an owner can run for the board, and every owner gets to vote for board members each year. The Board of Directors consists of seven (7) consumer-owners and two (2) worker-owners. Board members are committed to representing nearly 6000 Co-op consumer- and worker-owners, and voicing the values and goals of Co-op members.
The main responsibilities of the board involve setting the goals and values of the Co-op (read about our values HERE), as well as hiring, evaluating, and holding the General Manager accountable for the overall success of the Co-op. Our Co-op is built by Durham and dedicated to serving Durham. The Board exists so the Durham Co-op Market can achieve the most for its owners and the Durham community!
