2022 Reuse Minnesota Board of Directors election

September 1, 2022

The Reuse Minnesota Board of Directors is made up of individuals who are passionate about reuse. The board currently functions as a hybrid of a working board and an advisory/oversight board. To support organizational needs, board members serve on teams (finance, fund development, governance, membership, personnel, strategic planning) and work collaboratively with staff. The Board is made up of officers (president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary) and members at large. 

We currently have six (6) open board positions and are seeking individuals from a variety of backgrounds. We strongly encourage applications from owners and employees of reuse businesses, BIPOC individuals, people with experience in fundraising and member recruitment, and individuals in Greater Minnesota.
