Shareholder Forum: Supporting Each Other and Our Co-op During Tough Times PDF Print E-mail

Collaborative writing by Barry Aleshnick, Mike Szostak and Kathy Carr
February 2016

The Shareholder Forum was created by shareholders to better understand the workings of our Co-op. It was sparked during a period of tension and disagreement, the breeding ground for most new movements. Born of conflict, it has since morphed into an integral part of the Co-op, designed to have a supportive, collaborative, and complementary role in the Co-op's affairs, and to provide shareholders with an additional avenue of participation if they wish to contribute to solutions and improvements.

As a result of forum meetings, participants have developed more supportive relationships with each other, management, and the board. This support is especially important during the difficult financial times we now face. Our new management team—Sabine Rhyne, General Manager, and Whitney Field, Store Manager—have been in their positions for only a short time and are working hard to meet the challenges they face. They have tough decisions to make and will need the active support of all shareholders and employees.

The Shareholder Forum has been consistently meeting each month on the third Sunday from 5pm to 7pm in the Community Room at the Co-op. We meet to discuss topics that are of interest to us as shareholders, including store finances, affordability, support of local producers, etc.
Some shareholders have been concerned about this meeting day and time. If there is a better day and time that would encourage more shareholders to participate, we’d be glad to change. We welcome new voices and new opinions. You can email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  with questions or comments.
