Board Meeting Recap—April 2022

The Co-op’s Board of Directors met virtually on April 27, 2022. Ten board members were present along with five employees, one board candidate, and one other Co-op member. President Nick Clark called the meeting to order at 5:15 p.m.

After passing the consent agenda and a required approvals agenda, the board discussed the upcoming retreat for newly elected board members and those returning for another year, along with incoming General Manager Amanda Charland.

Amanda Charland then presented the quarterly report on EL 1—Finances, which was accepted by the board. Current General Manager Paul Guidone provided additional input to questions from board members. Co-op member Cindy Heath then spoke to the meeting as a representative of the Lebanon High School Students for Sustainability, who presented a proposal to phase out single-use plastic produce bags at the Co-op. Board members and Amanda will meet at a future date to discuss how this might be achieved.

Nick Clark presented the board’s monitoring report on GP 7—Monitoring Board Performance and suggested that the board consider a monitoring template for consistency. Governance Committee Chair Rosemary Fifield presented a draft proposal for revisions to GP 5—President’s Role and explained the reasons behind the proposed revisions. The board voted to accept the revised policy as presented.

Incoming General Manager Amanda Charland presented the General Manager’s Report. Board members Conicia Jackson and Marta Ceroni gave updates from the Election Committee and Ends Committee, respectively.

Various board members then noted the upcoming changes in both board makeup and management, acknowledging and thanking outgoing General Manager Paul Guidone, outgoing Human Resources Director Lori Hildbrand, and outgoing Director of Finance Mark Langlois, as well as outgoing board members Emmanuel Ajavon, Kevin Birdsey, Rosemary Fifield, and Jessica Giordani. Only Jessica Giordani is running for another term.

The meeting adjourned at 6:27 p.m.
