The Co-op’s board of directors is directly elected by the membership, and is made up of members just like you. 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, September 22nd. Please ask at the Customer Service desk in the store for directions. If you’re unable to attend, you can still check out the July 2014 Minutes now or members may also request a print-out of Adopted Minutes from past board meetings at Customer Service.
In addition to our monthly board meeting, the board’s Member Linkage Committee occasionally hosts events that allow more dialogue and participation directly between directors and members. These typically occur bi-monthly, though the MLC will forego a September meeting and request members to instead join us at the Annual Meeting on September 7th (more info below). In case you were unable to attend the most recent gathering, you can read the Potluck Picnic with the Board meeting notes online here: MLC Potluck Meeting Summary
