Board Meetings: When an Owner speaks, the Board listens...

Attend A Board Meeting (and take in some local history too!)

Beginning Tuesday, September 13th, River Market owners can attend monthly Board of Directors Meetings in person. These meetings are held in the Education Center room at the Washington County Heritage Center, 1862 Greeley St South, Stillwater. Our board meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of every month beginning at 6:00pm. The first 20 minutes of board meetings are open for comments and feedback from owners – we welcome input and engagement with your Board of Directors.

Owners may also submit items to be included for discussion at a board meeting.  With advance notice, your input may be added as an agenda item for future board consideration, provided it is relevant to the board’s work. Please submit your item by the first weekday of the month in which you request the board’s consideration. 

River Market owners who attend the board meetings are also eligible to access the three large gallery spaces featuring the topics of 1860s-1960s Fashion, Photographer John Runk, and the “From the Woods to the World” Lumber Exhibit. This additional benefit is free of charge – you may tour the exhibits before the meetings.

Board meetings are also held virtually via ZOOM. If you would like to attend the next Board of Directors Zoom meeting, please email the Board Admin at

Annual Meeting: Where Food, Fun and Financials Mix

This is the primary opportunity for owners to link with other shareholders, hear directly from board and management, and give input on co-op issues. River Market Community Co-op traditionally holds the Annual Ownership Meeting the 2nd Saturday of October.

While this event includes a business portion (board election results and annual financial summary) the mood is intended to be festive and joyous –  celebrating success in a precious shared resource – our co-op! 

The annual meeting is also the time of year where board members complete and start their terms.  Candidates interested in running for the board apply by July 31st and the election takes place the few weeks leading up to the annual meeting.  If you are interested in learning more about running for the board, follow the link below.
