Running for the Board

Running for the Board

About the Board: GreenTree’s Board of Directors is made up of 5-9 democratically elected GreenTree Owners. They serve 3-year terms. The Board meets the third Wednesday of every month from 5:30-8:00pm. The Board currently meets via zoom, but will eventually return to in-person meetings at the Veteran’s Memorial Library in downtown Mount Pleasant.

The Board’s primary responsibility is to ensure the long-term success of our Co-op while meeting the understood and expressed desires of our Owners by way of hiring, supervising, and evaluating the General Manager. The Board is not responsible for day-to-day operations. Our focus during the last few years has been on the expansion to our new location, which is set to open in fall 2021. We are very excited about this next chapter in our Co-op story and take our responsibility seriously. It has been and will continue to be a huge undertaking for our GM, staff, and Board.

We are looking for people who can commit the time and energy needed to help make our relocation venture a success. Specifically, the Board needs members who can assist with our Capital Campaign, who have community connections, and who are willing to ask for money.

We also have a goal of expanding the diversity of the Board and encourage all of our Owners to consider running. You can download a Board Candidacy Form here. It can be returned to the store in person or submitted via email to
