Hi. My name is Dave Pauly, and I have been on the Willy Street Co-op Board for two years. We are looking for a few good folks to run this summer for the Board. Could one of them be you?
1.You would work with a great group of other Board members and Willy Street Co-op staff. They would all support you in many ways.
2.It is exciting! Opening the new Willy North and all the decisions leading up to that were very interesting. Who knows what expansion and addition opportunities will present themselves this next year or two.
3. You get great training. The Co-op and other organizations will get you up to speed in no time.
4. It is fun! Giving away free samples of pie or other goodies to customers is very enjoyable.
5. You get to see how much everybody cares about the Co-op and wants it to fulfill its mission. It is heartwarming to see how much staff and the Board care about the Co-op.
6. The time commitment is about five hours per month on average and is very manageable.
Please consider running for the Board. I can tell you from personal experience that it is very rewarding!
