REI Board of Directors

REI is the nation's largest consumer co-operative. A professional management team and staff operate REI, and a board of directors selected from REI's membership oversees the company. The co-op's board is comprised of not less than 10 nor more than 14 Directors. Directors are elected from REI's membership and serve staggered three-year terms. REI's president and CEO is a member of the board by virtue of the position. One of the outside directors is selected to serve as the board's chair.

As required by our co-op bylaws, the board’s Nominating and Governance Committee is responsible for the process of identifying, recruiting and recommending diverse, highly-qualified candidates to be placed on the yearly ballot.
