    Volunteer Board Director Nominations

    Board Vacancies – March 2023

    The board of the Blue Mountains Food Co-op, in consultation with management, is responsible for the delivery of the Co-op’s aims, to set its strategic direction, and to uphold its values.

    Qualities we look for in a director:

    • Alignment with the values of the Co-op
    • Previous experience as a board member of a not-for-profit community organisation is desirable but not essential
    • The ability to devote a minimum of eight hours a month to the role
    • A willingness to share appropriate personal networks and champion the Co-op
    • A passion for healthy, sustainable living
    • Availability to attend monthly, weeknight board meetings

    The benefits of being a director:

    • Working with a pro-active and committed board and staff with a strong focus on governance
    • Satisfaction of contributing to the growth and development of a unique and respected organisation which is the largest, and one of the oldest, food co-ops in Australia
    • An additional 20% discount on all Co-op goods in addition to the existing 10% membership discount
    • Governance experience and training
    • Comprehensive directors’ and officers’ management liability insurance
