Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market is governed by an elected Board of Directors. Nine member-owners of People's (six consumer and three worker) are elected by the ownership, serve on the Board at any given time. The Board meets monthly, typically on the third Monday of the month, with Board committees (Finance, Planning, and Outreach and Education) meeting typically on the second Monday of the month.

The Board has three primary duties.

To fulfill these responsibilities, the Board of Directors focuses on four key areas:

The Board also oversees elections and recommends updates to the Co-op's Bylaws, the legal document that defines and guides People's. Download a pdf of the Bylaws.

Additionally, People's Board of Directors look after the best interests of the Co-op as a whole in a changing business environment; this means that policies and practices at the Co-op may change over time. Member-owners are welcome to attend regularly scheduled meetings as observers with the exception of items that are designated for Executive Session. For this month's meeting dates, please see our Home page.
