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.

The next board meeting is Monday, September 21st at 7:00 PM.

The board will be hosting the meeting in a virtual format. There will be no public meeting in our conference room. Members may participate by joining via WebEx.

Board Meeting Guidelines for Guests

We welcome and encourage members of the Co-op to attend Board meetings as guests.

  • The Board will do its best to make meeting business clear and accessible to members, but acknowledges that there are limitations to our ability to do so and also conduct business efficiently. Please let us know if you have suggestions on how to improve member experience at our meetings.

  • The Board meets once per month. To help us be efficient in our work, the Board follows a carefully prepared agenda. We ask that all guests be respectful of the Board’s process and raise their hands if they are interested in contributing to a discussion. Depending on the issue or time concerns the Board may choose to hear from members or not at their discretion.

  • We always welcome your questions and comments during our Members Open Session item on the agenda. If we have a lot of members attending, we may have to ask you to limit your comments to two minutes.  If you feel that two minutes is not enough time, we ask that you request an agenda item be added to the agenda in advance so that the Board may allow the appropriate time to hear your comments.

  • Requests for information and answers to questions from the Board of Directors will be provided whenever possible. Some issues may need to be addressed in subsequent meetings or over email.

  • The Board may decide that your concern is an issue that has been delegated to the management, and therefore refer you to the appropriate staff member for next steps or response.

  • Some of the information discussed at Board meetings is related to confidential information, particularly personnel matters and some contractual and legal issues . We reserve these conversations for Executive Session, and will request that guests excuse themselves before this agenda item.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
