Meet Your Board

Common Ground Board of Directors


Common Ground is governed by an elected Board of Directors. Elected by our Co-op Owners, there are currently nine Board of Directors. They meet regularly and report on the state of the co-op at the Spring Financial Meeting of Owners (Fin Moo) and Annual Meeting of Owners every fall. The Board also oversees elections and recommends updates to the Bylaws, the legal documents that define and guide the co-op. Directors must look after the best interests of the co-op as a whole in a changing business environment. That means that policies and practices at the Co-op may change over time. You can contact the Board of Directors at

Board Meeting Location

Come see the Board in action! Every 2nd Monday of the Month, the Board will host a Board Meeting in the Flatlander Classroom at Common Ground from 6:15-8:15pm. 

NOTE: Board members also come to the co-op for tabling the Friday right before monthly meetings from 5:30 to 7 pm.

COVID Update: Board meetings will be held via Zoom until further notice. If you'd like to attend a virtual board meeting, please email the board for the Zoom link:
