The Prescott Farmers Market is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors. Board directors are elected to represent the membership of the Prescott Farmers Market. The Board of Directors is responsible for fulfilling the organization’s mission, and is legally accountable for its operations. The Board functions through regular meetings, committees, and its annual board retreat.
Board directors are elected by members of the market. Members are informed of their membership status in writing before the close of the market each season. Members may nominate any individual to serve on the board. Members may vote for new Directors of the Board at the annual meeting. A member in good standing shall meet the following requirements:
- The individual or representative of a participating entity must be a resident of Yavapai County;
- Who has paid annual membership dues (market fees) and fees to the corporation by September 1 of each year;
- And whose main product(s) must be/contain an agricultural product grown/harvested in Yavapai County.
Annual meetings of the members are held within 30 days of the last Prescott Farmers Market of the summer season. At the annual meeting, members shall elect a Board of Directors and transact any other business, which is properly brought before the meeting.
