The Participating Owner Program provides our owners with a means to deepen their involvement and impact in our community. These volunteers play a pivotal role in our cooperative by sharing their talents and donating their time to activities such as teaching customers about food and nutrition, facilitating playgroups and clubs, contributing to our publications, and more.
Per a Board of Directors’ policy that guides the program, volunteer positions shall not be of an operational nature. We look for useful and creative ways to engage owners in our mission and strategic plan.
As positions become available, we will post them below. The link to apply is below the current openings section; you may also pick up a hard copy application at the Customer Service Desk.
An application also may be submitted to receive first notice of opportunities at they arise, or to suggest a role that is not currently advertised.
Please email Willow Venzke at email@example.com with any questions!

The committee will meet with the Education & Outreach Coordinator a few times each year to confirm films and assign action items for individual members.
