About the Board + Meeting Schedule

Hampden Park Co-op is guided by a nine-member board of directors consisting of eight directors elected from the membership by the membership to serve three years, and one staff representative who serves one year. Elections occur during the October Annual Meeting as terms expire.

The HPC Board of Directors uses the Policy Governance model, a detailed and comprehensive method that helps ensure that the board does not involve itself in store operations; rather that work is left to the GM and staff. Consider the directors as stewards, elected to ensure that the co-op’s business operations live up to the member community’s ideals.

In our current political climate, many people have decided that the local politic is where real change begins. We at Hampden Park Co-op envision a broad-based cooperative foundation to improve the economic well being of the world! One small way you can embody the world change you want to see is by communicating with the board, attending a monthly board meeting and/or the Annual Meeting, even running for the board. Reach out occasionally if you have ideas – or join us for three years! To find out about running in the future look here.
