If you have the desire to help lead the Yelm Cooperative into the future a
nd have the skills we need, we’d like to hear from you.
The process for this is covered in several earlier posts. Please read through them to get a better idea of what the Cooperative needs in its management team.
One thing to keep in mind: this is not just about the Food Co-op retail store. This is also about fulfilling the whole Vision & Mission Statement which includes the Yelm Farmer’s Market and the proposed Community Gardens and the development of the Community Food Education Program. Directors elected this year may also become Directors of a federal non-profit (501.c) entity when the application is approved.
Elected directors will also be able to apply for Board Officer positions which this year will include Treasurer and Secretary.
Board Application Form (pdf format)
Along with the Board Skills Matrix, please send a short resume and give us some ideas of how you’d like to advance the Vision and Mission of the Co-op, if you are selected, and then elected by the membership. Please send both to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Board application”.
You can also pick up the Application Forms at the store.
Thanks for stepping up!
