A strong, creative, involved and experienced Board is vital to the future of the Co-op. We are always looking for fresh faces and ideas on the Board. We hope that our engaged members will step forward to participate.
For over four decades the Maple Street Co-op has been a leader in
co-operative, ethical business providing healthy food, locally sourced products and job opportunities to Maleny and the surrounding communities.
You can be part of this important legacy by contributing your skills, time and enthusiasm to the Board of Directors. We meet monthly and are looking for team players with skills and interest in retail, business, finance, law, healthy living and/or cooperatives
