People's Board of Directors

People's Board of Directors

People's Board Members are Owners like you! Because People's is a co-op, your board ensures that the co-op's Ends and operations support a vital co-op that will support the needs and visions of our Member-Owners, and the broader community for generations to come.

How does People's Board govern?

People's Board of Directors uses a governance system called Policy Governance.

This governance style concentrates our Board on vision while also creating accountability for the operations of the co-op.  The Board is responsible for voicing the co-op's Ends, and then it makes sure People's Collective Management upholds these Ends in its daily operations as well as through its far-reaching projects.  The Board also creates and monitors policy the co-op is operating in a way that's legally and fiscally responsible and upholds the values of the co-op by treating Member-Owners and staff well.

If you'd like to know more about how the Board governs, please contact Collective Manager Shawn Furst or Board President Joel Brock.
