Our Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is made up of owners who are elected for three-year terms by popular vote. They operate under the Policy Governance method, using consensus to reach decisions. The board creates and reviews broad goals to provide direction to the general manager, who is then responsible for identifying the steps necessary to achieve these goals. 

Board Meetings

Board meetings are held in the Community Room at the Neighborhood Co-op. Meetings are typically held on the fourth Monday of the month. However, OwnerFest serves as the April meeting. Also, due to overlap with national holidays, the November and December meetings are typically combined, with one meeting being held on the first Monday of the month. If you would like to contact the board, please email them at BoardLink@Neighborhood.Coop

Are you someone who likes to work as a team, is interested in helping guide the co-op to a successful future, and likes to be a part of something important? For more information about running for the board click here.
