The MNFC Board of Directors

What is the Governance Model?

The Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op is governed by an eleven-member Board of Directors that is elected by its member-owners. The Board is directly accountable to member-owners for all of the activities and accomplishments of the Co-op, including the store. However, the Board does not “micro-manage” the Co-op or its General Manager, but sets policies by which the Co-op (and the Board) are run.



What is the Board Responsible For?

The MNFC Board is responsible for:

  • Developing, monitoring, and revising policies that guide the store to achieve outcomes that are consistent with the members’ values and vision.
  • Ensuring (through consistent monitoring) that management achieves goals set by the Board and that the Board operates according to its established processes.
  • Acting as a representative for all of the Co-op’s member-owners.

Board members hold their positions for three-year terms, and elections are held every Spring. If you are interested in becoming a Board member, please contact the Board at board@middleburycoop.com or call the office at 802-388-7276.
