Fellow Cooperators, the magical season of fall is on its way. Days are getting shorter, the apples are ripe and many of us are getting back into familiar rhythms of school and work. I am almost always ready for fall to arrive, and some years summer is just a bit too short.
Summer was a busy time for your Board of Directors, we prepared for Board elections and saw many of you at our Annual Meeting & Party. In August we oriented our new Board members and had our annual Board retreat.
EQUITY LEARNING MOMENTS
Finally, I wanted to share some interesting new things your Board has been working on this past year. Through work done by the Board Development Committee, your Board has started doing both Equity Learning Moments and what we call “generative work.” Equity Learning Moments are self-led discussions or mini-trainings of which the goal is to raise awareness, have the group consider social equity from a variety of perspectives, and to become more comfortable discussing social equity in groups. Our generative work is a thinking process that is intended to be very big picture. In these work sessions we are trying to better understand our strengths, our community, and ultimately be a source of leadership for the organization.
