Board of Directors

The Cambridge Food Co-op has an active Board of Directors who ensure the efficient, effective running of the Co-op. 


How the Board Operates

What is the Board of Directors and What Do They Do?

As a consumer cooperative, the Cambridge Food Co-op is managed by a Board of Directors, a democratically-elected group of Co-op member-owners committed to upholding the values of the Co-op and ensuring the activities of the organization are in the best interests of the Co-op community. Directors are responsible for maintaining the operational and financial health of the Co-op, supervising Co-op management, and engaging in long term planning for the future of the Co-op.  

Board Committees help the Board accomplish tasks. These six committees consist of:

  • Governance ​

  • Membership & Community Relations

  • Building

  • Finance

  • Personnel

  • Executive​


Committees are made up of Co-op members and are usually chaired by a member of the Board. They meet regularly to assist with different sectors of the organization. The committees are guided by their charters, which you can read here.

When Does the Board Meet?

The board meets at least 6 times per year and all Co-op members are encouraged to attend. Board meeting agendas and most recent draft meeting minutes are posted on the Co-op’s bulletin board and sent to all members via email prior to each scheduled meeting. During the pandemic, meetings have been via Zoom, and links to the meetings are emailed to members prior to each meeting.
