Council Looks Forward to Challenges Ahead in 2011; Seeks Candidates for Election

Friday, 11 February 2011 20:40

By 12th Moon,
Council President

As the snow started to fall on January 11, Council began our first regular monthly meeting of the year. It was a credit to the work that Council accomplished in 2010 that we had a light agenda of items to address for the evening, that our last agenda item was the process of updating our Policy Books with all of the changes generated by our actions over the last six months, and that we were able to adjourn the meeting early.

The Interim General Manager’s (IGM) report also reflected the process of ending one year and beginning another. As our managers compile the financial information and other data relevant to assessing the Co-op’s progress during 2010, they are planning many projects and improvements for 2011, while also preparing for the annual membership renewal season and continuing to explore various uses of our 700 West Buffalo property.

Saturday, 31 May 2008 19:00

By Dan Hoffman,
Council President

The Membership Referendum that took place in April drew a small turnout, but by a three to one  margin rejected allowing goods from the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) to be sold at GreenStar—albeit with certain exceptions.  At the same time, members chose seven people for open seats on the Co-op’s Council (Board of Directors), including the two candidates whose names appeared on the ballot and five write-ins.
