As the landscape of Fort Wayne changes, the co-op continues to find different ways to provide products and education that support the community. Serving on the board during this time is a wonderful opportunity to learn from the rich history of the co-op and help ensure its vital work moving forward.
3 Rivers Food Coop is governed by an elected Board of Directors. A total of nine owners comprise the board and open seats are voted on by the member owners each October. They meet regularly and report, along with the General Manager, on the state of the coop at the Annual Meeting of owners every autumn. The Board also offers news in our monthly newsletter, Currents. The Board operates using policy governance methods by which they create and monitor policies given to the General Manager to interpret and implement.
