Board of Directors

The Wedge is governed by an elected Board of Directors. Seven Wedge members, elected by the membership, are on the board at any given time. They meet regularly and report on the state of the co-op at the Annual Meeting of the Wedge Co-op Membership every autumn.

The Board has three primary duties.

  • To ensure sound management of the co-op
  • To act as trustees on behalf of the membership
  • To set long-range goals and plan for the future

To fulfill these responsibilities, the Board of Directors focuses on four key areas:

  • Hiring and evaluating the CEO
  • Financial oversight
  • Long-range strategic planning
  • Recruitment of replacement directors

The Board also oversees elections and recommends updates to the Articles and Bylaws, the legal documents that define and guide the co-op.

Directors must look after the best interests of the co-op as a whole in a changing business environment. That means that policies and practices at the co-op may change over time.

Members are welcome to attend the board meetings. If you want to contact the co-op's Board of Directors, please use the "contact us" form and be sure to select the appropriate category.
