The Board of Directors represents all 2,300+ owners and shapes the vision for the co-op while evaluating the current performance of the business through Policy Governance. A strong and successful cooperative depends on a highly functional and effective Board of Directors.
The Open Harvest Board of Directors is comprised of nine co-op owners who are elected by the general ownership and serve three-year terms. Any co-op owner may run for a board position. This year, we had FIVE candidates run for THREE board seats. The 2021 Board + SEED Election concluded on October 31st, 2021.
