See the Co-op calendar for Board and Committee meetings.
Board meeting – Wednesday, September 10, 7 pm, Roots Room at the Cordata store
Member Affairs Committee meeting – Wednesday, August 27, 5:15 pm, Connection building at the Downtown store
Co-op member-owners elect a nine-member Board of Directors to guide the Community Food Co-op. This leadership and policy-setting group reports to the member-owners and is responsible for the planning, review, and oversight of the Co-op.
The Board meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 pm alternately at the Downtown Connection Building, 1200 N. Forest St. and at the Cordata Local Roots room, 315 Westerly Road. All member-owners are welcome. Each meeting starts with a 10-minute member-owner forum. Member-owners are encouraged to share what’s on your mind with your Board. To participate in the member-owner forum, contact Board Administrator Jean Rogers in advance, at 360-734-8158 or firstname.lastname@example.org, by the first Monday of the month, if possible. Board meeting minutes are posted here and agendas, meeting minutes, and any location changes are also posted on bulletin boards at the front of each store.
