The Co-op’s board of directors is directly elected by the membership, and is made up of members just like you. In accordance with our Co-op’s Bylaws, board members work to keep the Co-op accountable to cooperative principles, and make sure that the Co-op remains a sustainable business. They do this through a system of checks and balances called Policy Governance.
Board meetings are open to the Co-op membership and typically occur on the third Monday of each month. For those in attendance at the Board Meetings, we request they observe the Board Meeting Guidelines for Guests, as these are working meetings. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and are located in the Training Room in the Co-op’s administrative offices in the Factory building.
Join us at our next meeting: Monday, April 20th. Please ask at the Customer Service desk in the store for directions. If you’re unable to attend, you can still check out the February 2015 minutes.
Members may also request a print-out of Adopted Minutes from past board meetings at Customer Service or by emailing email@example.com.

In addition to monthly board meetings, the board’s Member Linkage Committee occasionally hosts events that allow more dialogue and participation directly between directors and members. On February 28th, members met with the MLC to discuss plans for member engagement in 2015; download the notes to learn more. The next MLC meeting will be held on April 25th, see the poster below for more details.
