The Hollywood Farmers Market is looking for fellow market lovers to join our Board of Directors. We operate two year-round farmers markets in the Hollywood and Lloyd districts and we are looking for enthusiastic board members to help our markets thrive. The Board is typically made up of customers, farmers and other vendors, health advocates, neighborhood leaders and community members who are looking for a way to get more involved.
The Board is responsible for the governance of the markets – setting policy, creating the budget, and staff oversight. Board members are expected to attend regular meetings on the third Wednesday of every month at the Rose City Park Presbyterian Church (NE 44th & Sandy Blvd) and typically serve on one additional committee. Board members occasionally volunteer at the markets and also participate in a half-day retreat in January.
Needed skills and expertise include leadership, legal, finance, marketing, food policy, nutrition, public health, diversity, staff management, marketing and graphic design. If you have questions or would like to attend a meeting to see the board in action, please contact Board Chair Amy Columbo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications can be found at our website, www.hollywoodfarmersmarket.org. Applications are due October 12th. Thank you for your interest and see you at the market!
