Join the Outpost Natural Foods Board of Directors!

Board Beet
By Your Board on November 16, 2021

As an owner of our cooperative, you obviously care about our work to provide access to locally produced food and goods, our impact on our community and the long-term sustainability of operation. You currently support this mission with your shopping dollars, but did you know that you can increase your support by running to join our board of directors?  

Good, locally grown food requires good, locally sourced leadership, and this is what our board of directors is all about. As a board director, you will help to set long range goals and policies for the co-op, ensure that the GM works towards the goals and policies that are in place and represent the various interests and needs of the co-op owners to the GM.

It’s a fun gig and you’ll get to meet eight other like-minded people who will serve with you on the board.

Interested? Check out our board nominations application and packet to learn about the requirements and how to apply at www.outpost.coop/nominations.

Once you apply – and before you are nominated – you’ll be required to attend a board meeting so you can get a sense of what board service looks like. Then you’ll have a brief interview with our nominations committee so that they can get to know you better.

If you’re nominated by the full board, you’ll be voted on by Outpost owners (23,000 of your best friends) all throughout the greater Milwaukee metropolitan area.

If you’re elected, you’ll become one of nine board members that oversee one of the largest consumer cooperatives in the country. You’ll get a chance to learn how a sophisticated grocery cooperative operates and help to lead our growth in a manner that best serves the interests of our owners.

As a member of our Board of Directors, you’ll work with a smart, diverse and professional group of Milwaukeeans who are dedicated to working in the community. We all share a passion for ensuring that Outpost continues to be a leader in our local food system. Please join us!
