Our Board works to develop and deepen the Co-op's Ends through community engagement with our Member-Owners and broader communities.

Because People's is a co-op, any interested, dedicated Member-Owner (including you!) may run for our Board of Directors. The Board ensures that the Co-op is run in a legal and financially sustainable way by the Collective Management. In these ways, they make certain that People's will support the needs of our Member-Owners and broader communities for years to come.
