Co-op Membership Gives More than Just a Discount

Friday, 31 October 2008 11:23

By Eric 12th Moon,
Councilmember and Membership Committee Chair

As I have talked with and listened to many of our member-owners and shoppers over the last few years, I have often heard it said that membership at GreenStar means that you get a two percent discount at the register, so if you spend $500 in a year you recover the cost of your $10 yearly membership fee.

Is that all? Is that it?

We get a lot more as member-owners of our local co-op than that.

Council Addresses 2011 Budget; Continues to Discuss 700 W. Buffalo

By 12th Moon,
Council President

Council held its regular monthly meeting October 12 with fewer than the normal number of agenda items, some of which led to lengthy discussions. The meeting started with an announcement by our Treasurer, long-time Councilmember Arthur Godin, that he will resign from Council at the end of this year so that he may devote more of his time to his family, his work and to his creative career as a talented musician. It goes without saying that we will sorely miss his experienced perspective and calm, even approach. Much thanks and best wishes to Art for his input over the years and to his future adventures; we’ll miss you, if we can’t convince you to change your mind.

Next a request was voiced by a member present for Council and staff to look toward ways to include more of a diverse population in our staff, our membership and our shoppers, with an acknowledgement that the newly-initiated “FLOWER” discount program was a positive step in that direction.
