The River Market Community Co-op’s (RMCC) Board of Directors represents the interests of the owners and is accountable to owners. Owners directly participate in this process by communicating with directors; attending board meetings; running as a board candidate; and electing board officers in annual elections. Owners are encouraged to provide input to inform board discussion in crafting policy.
The Board consists of seven (7) to nine (9) volunteer directors elected by the Ownership who are legally responsible for the overall direction and performance of the Co-op. The Board carries out this responsibility by establishing broad policy guidelines, and by monitoring the General Manager within that framework. It is the General Manager’s function to implement the policies established by the board and carry out the day-to-day operations. Directors typically spend an average of 10 to 16 hours per month on board-related activities.
