Dear Co-op Members,
The Co-op Annual Members Meeting was held October 12, 2014. This was a pivotal meeting for our future as a co-op. As part of the membership meeting a working group was established to determine the feasibility of various scenarios outlined in the minutes. This feasibility analysis is work that will be done between now and January 31st to inform the Board on whether the co-op should remain open for business, and if so, what that would look like. If you could not make it to the meeting, and are interested in being part of this feasibility working group, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This group will be meeting from 6:30 to 8 pm on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of November and December. If you want to be involved in the feasibility analysis but cannot make it to these meetings, please let send us an email and we can add you to a newly-created Google email group that receives announcements from this working group.
In concert with volunteerism for the feasibility working group, we are actively recruiting members to apply for upcoming Board elections. We are looking to increase our board from 6 to 7 members and will have 4 open positions this fall, with the new 2-year terms starting January 1st, 2015. If you are interested in running we ask that you attend 1 or 2 Board meetings to familiarize yourself with how we operate and make sure this will be a good fit. Applications for Board members and a description of the position will be posted here soon.
