Because of Election Day falling on the usual meeting day, the next Weavers Way Board meeting has been moved to Tuesday, Nov. 14. We will convene in the back room of the Mercantile, 542 Carpenter Lane, in Mt. Airy. All members are welcome.
Weavers Way Co-op has an elected Board of Directors that represents member-owners’ interests in the operation of the store and the broader vision of the Co-op. Board members serve three-year terms and are not compensated. The Board meets monthly and meetings are open to all members. Any member-owner in good standing is eligible to run for the Board in elections held in the spring.
The Board uses the Policy Governance model (.pdf 70kb) to structure their activities and guide how they relate to the Weavers Way’s member-owners and the Co-op’s general manager. Policy Governance emphasizes strategic leadership and a clear distinction between Board and management duties.
