Board of Directors Election

The members of Three Rivers Market elect 3 Directors for 3-year terms each year. 

Voting normally begins in the store on the 1st Tuesday in November and concludes at the Annual Meeting on the 1st Tuesday in December.

In 2016, the election was uncontested. We had three candidates for the three open seats.  Current Directors Dave Penegar (Chair) and Nina Gregg will serve a three year term beginning this December. Newcomer Crista Cuccaro  joined them and in light of her outstanding qualifications, was been invited to begin her term in November to fill a vacant seat and get up to speed on our work.

We were also honored to welcome Amy Brooks as appointee to the remaining open position. Read more about the qualifications and interests of this fantastic four here. Moving forward, our nine Directors are poised to speak with one voice for healthy, sustainable food and cooperative change in Knoxville and beyond!
