Co-op Governance

Unlike a typical housing or apartment complex, our co-op operates as a democratic and not-for-profit organization led by our co-op members. Members elect a Board of Directors who best reflect their values and visions for the co-op, who will then represent the community in overall governance.

Governance Structure

CTC is a resident-governed co-op with the assistance of a professional management team. While the management team directs the day-to-day operations, residents that become members shape the co-op’s future.

Members control the cooperative by democratically electing member representatives to a board of directors. The CTC Board of Directors consists of nine representatives that act as the decision-making and governing body responsible for the co-op’s overall direction and performance.

The Board works closely and collectively with the standing committees and management team to establish long-term strategies that both ensure and empower a happy, healthy, and prosperous co-op community.

Board Responsibility

The unique identity of our co-op means that our Board of Directors serve on behalf of the members’ interests by developing governance policies that are consistent with our values and vision. The Board members work to promote a culture that optimizes financial, ethical, social, and environmental performance in accordance with our co-op principles.

The Board carries out this responsibility by establishing broad policy guidelines, proposing updates to our Articles and Bylaws – the legal documents that define and guide the co-op – and monitor the co-op’s financial condition. The Board also oversees the hiring of the co-op’s general manager, providing insight and support to ensure the seamless achievement of the co-op’s organizational goals.

Board Meetings & Minutes

We welcome and encourage everyone to attend our monthly Board meetings, as well as to get involved. Bring your questions, feedback, and ingenuity for an open discussion at the beginning of the meeting.

Board meetings typically occur on the fourth Thursday of each month in the Community Center Meeting Room. View calendar.

Serve on the Board

Joining our Board of Directors is a remarkable opportunity to serve and enhance your community with exemplary leadership. Any co-op member in good standing can run for an open board position. We seek board candidates that are passionate about our community with strong leadership skills and a collaborative approach.

Co-op members elect new Board members for two-year terms every spring at the Annual Member Meeting. The average time commitment on the Board is about 5 hours a month, which can vary depending on position and current projects. Board members receive exemption from periodic laundry room cleaning of their ward in exchange for their service.
