|Shareholder Forum: Our Co-op is the Work of Many Hands & Many Dreams|
by Barry Aleshnik & Wesley Pittman
When one reads the comment cards posted in the condiment corner of the cafe, and the responses of the Co-op staff, one sees how diverse our interests are and how hard we work to nourish ourselves. Let us nourish this living dream with continuing engagement.
Are you represented as you want to be in this community? Is there anything missing from the goods we offer, or from our services? Is there anything about our governance practices that you don't understand or wish to improve? Do you have practical suggestions—for example, how can we lessen congestion and confusion in our parking lot?
We can use this space in Food for Thought to engage one another and to nourish the store that nourishes us. By sharing our thoughts, we engage. Engagement is improvement. Engagement is the life of our cooperative community.
