Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is made up of dedicated, passionate Co-op owners that are elected to their positions. We have an annual election where all Co-op owners vote for their choice in Board representatives. They are a group of individuals, who are as diverse as the community and producers they serve.
The role of a board member can be fun, but not to be taken lightly. This group of volunteers work hard for us all.
Steve Moore - President
Jane Kurzeja - Vice President
Ward Hinds - Secretary
Jeff Capeloto - Treasurer
What the board does is act on behalf of the membership to set strategic plans for the Co-op's futue, ensure that the Co-op remains fiscally sound and operates within the cooperative principles. We are addressing a long term plan for growth, and building strategic relationships with local organizations.
The Board meets the first Monday of the Month in the classroom. The agenda always includes the first 1/2 hour for membership input, either live at the meeting or by another method of contacting the Board. We invite representatives from various organizations to come to a board dinner a half hour prior to the board meeting to present information about their organization and the nature of our strategic relationship with them.
We have two retreats: one in November to train new Board members and one in the summer for indepth strategic planning. The Board currently works with a cooperative consulting company that specializes in the leadership issues of food co-op boards.
Board members take part in different committees:
