The Co-op’s Board of Directors held their final meeting of the year on December 16, 2020 via Zoom. Ten board members, four employees, and two Co-op members were in attendance. President Jessica Saturley-Hall called the meeting to order at 5:15 p.m.
After accepting the consent agenda, the board went on to monitoring EL 1—Planning and found the report to show sufficient evidence of compliance. The board then discussed its own performance on GP 3—Board Development and came to the conclusion that improvement was called for in the area of bringing new board members up to speed on Policy Governance and the budgeting process.
After hearing an update to the General Manager’s written report, the board approved the proposed board budget for 2021 and heard a report on Member Linkage planning. Committee updates included a recommendation by the Bylaws Committee that more work be done on proposed bylaw revisions before bringing them to the members for a vote.
The Election Committee chair provided a brief update on the current election process and asked all board members to contact at least ten people each with requests to run for the board. The board approved the addition of Liz Blum to the Election Committee.
The Ends Committee chairperson provided an update on the committee’s work on surveys to be sent to stakeholders such as vendors and community partners.
Rosemary Fifield was elected as chair of the Governance Committee and Peggy O’Neil volunteered to join the committee.
The meeting adjourned at 7:11 p.m.
