Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op is run by a seven-person Board of Directors elected by our Co-op owners in an annual election held each September. Each Board member is elected for a three-year term and cannot sit on the Board for more than three consecutive terms.
The primary responsibilities of the Board of Directors are to be legally accountable for the actions of SNFC, to provide overall direction and ensure the long-range security and viability of the Co-op, and to make decisions in the best interests of the Co-op and its entire membership. The Board is responsible for developing policies necessary to carry out the duties of the Board and the functions of the cooperative.
Co-op owners may choose to be involved in the governance of the Co-op in a number of ways. Besides voting in the Co-op's annual election, Co-op owners may also attend Board of Directors meetings, sit on Board committees or run for the Board of Directors.
