What is the Board of Directors role?

The Board is the legal representative of the Owners and, as such, is responsible for the overall well being of Deep Roots Market (DRM). The Board exercises its authority through its relationship with the General Manager (GM), whom it hires and monitors. All of the Board’s expectations and requirements for the GM’s performance are clearly stated in the Board’s written policies. The Board ensures DRM’s success by verifying that the GM remains in compliance with the Board’s policies.
