What does the Board do?  Glad you asked!  From the article:

The Olympia Food Co-op Board of Directors is the elected body that represents the membership. The Board establishes policies, oversees the operating and capital budgets, approves plans and recommendations, and sets general guidelines for staff and working members. The Board holds ultimate legal responsibility for the operations and actions of the Co-op.

Board members receive working member credit for their time spent in Board and committee meetings. The monthly hour commitment ranges between 10 to 20 hours.
