The October meeting was the second meeting with our newly elected Co-Op board members. The meeting consisted of general business such as voting on check signers, planning the yearly inventory tracking, and discussing events for 2022. We have also been refining our processes and a job description for a Member Coordinator and Bookkeeper was reviewed. Co-Op Owner, Michael P. gave a presentation about grant opportunities.
Our President, Cayla Catino, attended two half day training from Food Co-Op Initiatives and the California Center for Cooperative Development learning about Board alignment with mission, vision, values and networking with other Startup Food Cooperatives on the west coast.
A Board retreat was held on October 30th with the intention to re-evaluate our mission, vision values and design a project plan roadmap.
