• The ONF Board of Directors is a volunteer board elected by and from the owners annually, and represents the owners in establishing the long-term vision of the co-op, and monitoring General Manager (GM) performance. The Board welcomes any opportunity to interact with members of the community, and as such, reserves no more than 15 minutes of every regular monthly meeting for open time to meet with whoever may want to come. Individuals are limited to 2 minutes each unless granted prior Board approval.

    It is important to note, however, that the Board does not interfere with the day-to-day operations of the store except as directed by Board policy, allowing us to focus on linking with owners, and translating that into the long term vision of the Co-op. This board philosophy, called policy governance, has proven very effective for co-ops across the nation.

    We’d love to hear from you! Please fill out this form to help us organize our requests and document progress. We are also available via email and owner gatherings. Thank you for your support.
