Wayne Gretzky once said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” As an active member of the Brattleboro Food Co-op Board of Directors, I cannot not think of a better quote when someone is considering running for the board. Being a board member at the Brattleboro Food Co-op is a rewarding experience that allows you to make an impact on your community and gain valuable skills.  So, I’d like to highlight areas which I feel are rewards and skills you will gain if you join the BFC Board of Directors.
