New Board; Equity Learning Moments; and More!

By Jeannine Bindl, Board President

waterdu-tree.jpgFellow 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.

NEW BOARD

The August Board meeting was our first as a new Board. It was also the meeting where officer roles and Committee Assignments were decided. Did you know that Owners-at-large participate on many of our committees? Involvement in committees is another way that Owners can be involved at the Co-op. If you think committee involvement is something you would like to learn more about, please email the Board Development Committee at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (link sends e-mail) and we will send you information when spots open. There is currently an opening on the Finance committee. If you are interested, please email Ben Becker at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (link sends e-mail) for more information.

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.

WANT TO KNOW MORE?

If you are interested to learn more about Board meetings and what we do or talk about, please come visit us! Board meetings are open to all Owners. They take place on the third Tuesday of each month starting at 6:30pm at the Central Office on East Washington Avenue. Thank you for your investment in the Co-op! We enjoy hearing from Owners and can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
