Board News

Last Updated: August 28th, 2016 by Grocery Department.

It’s that time of the year again and . . . WE WANT YOU!

No, we’re not the U.S. Army. We are your friendly neighborhood Board of Directors at Three Rivers Market. Chances are, if you’re reading the Board News, you’re not only interested in the inner workings of your cooperative, but perhaps, you have considered Board service, or at least wondered what it is.

Do you have ideas on how Three Rivers Market can be even stronger? It’s recruitment time, and we want to make sure you know we have an election coming up. If you’re a member and appreciate the positive impact the cooperative has on our community, don’t just read the news. We encourage engaged members to take the next step towards active involvement: attend a Board meeting and learn about our Ends. Even if Board service isn’t for you at this time, we’d love to see you!
