The Board of Directors is the governing body for the owners of The New Orleans Food Co-op (NOFC). It is composed of five to nine people, all individual share owners (in good standing), elected by owners or appointed. Terms for directors may range from two to three years as needed to ensure the required five board directors are always filled. The Board is responsible for ensuring organizational performance on behalf of all of NOFC owners.
This work includes developing clearly stated expectations through written policies; delegating responsibility for, and authority over, the achievement of performance objectives; and monitoring compliance with written policies in the form of reports submitted by the general manager.
