Committees of the Board of Directors

Our committees help us run Honest Weight. See if there is a committee for you.

Committees at Honest Weight are committees of our Board of Directors. They help with the work of the Board and submit their projects to the Board for approval. Our committees have developed workplans for the year that help plan the use of their time and energy, workplans are posted in PDF format. (Note: this file may be password protected.  Please call the Co-op with your member number to obtain the password and download instructions or email memberservices-AT-honestweight.coop.)

Committee reports, when available, are appended to board meeting minutes. See this page for more information.

If you would like more information about any committee or to express interest in joining one, please use the committee email address provided below.  You can also email the Board: boardadmin@honestweight.coop
