REI is currently accepting self-nominations from members for the co-op's board of directors. Nominee criteria include personal and professional experience, such as matching REI's values, an appreciation for the outdoors and giving back to the community, business leadership skills and previous experience serving on a board.
You can request a nomination packet through email or mail. Nominations are being accepted now until August 27, 2010.
The board's Nominating and Governance Committee will review nominations this fall. REI members will receive ballots the following spring in their annual dividend mailer.
