The 2019 Board of Directors and its newly elected officers are excited to begin working on and planning new opportunities to help our beloved Farmers’ Market grow. In order for this growth to happen, we are looking for volunteers to join our various committees to help propel the Sackville Farmers’ Market into its next phase! As a voting member and community member, you are committed to seeing the Sackville Farmers’ Market succeed and we need your invaluable input and creative ideas. Being involved in a committee is a great way to help shape the organization, gain experience and support the organization that supports your business and community! Please consider joining our committee or sharing this information with a community member that cares about the Market and would like to become involved in a different way. Interested members can reach us via the Market Manager.
We are a legally constitute body of volunteers; through our incorporation and by -laws, that acts on behalf of the voting members as collective trustees of the Sackville Farmers Market. Our decisions are made in the best interest of the Sackville Farmers Market.The Board and the organization were founded in 2012 to formalize the farmers' markets' existence as a community hub for local shopping. The board has since been run by a group of dedicated volunteers from the community and vendors from the Market. Each Board member serves a 3 year term on the Board.
As the market grew over the years, it allowed for the hiring of a Market Manager. In 2017, the Board made the transition from an operational board to a governance board in order to better manage and insure the growth and success of the Sackville Farmers Market.
If you are interested in joining our Board of Directors, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with attention to the nominating committee.
