PFC’s board operates under Policy Governance structure, using the Carver model. The board empowers the general manager and co-op staff to work on the day to day operations of the Co-op, while focusing on the policies and broader vision of the organization.
Directors serve three-year terms; board seats rotate so there is always a mix of incoming and experienced directors. Board officers are nominated and appointed by the Board.
Elections for our board take place early in the year. Check for signs in the store and announcements in the PFC Connection newsletter. Click here for more information on board elections.

PFC’s board holds monthly meetings. Members are encouraged to attend. Time is set aside for public comments at the start of each meeting, and members may also join discussions.
Meeting agendas are posted in the front of the store and on this site. View the minutes of past Board meetings on this site or in PFC’s administrative offices (under the store) between 9am–4pm weekdays.
If you have a topic you would like the Board to consider, notify the board president. The deadline for member-requested agenda items is two weeks before the scheduled meeting.
