As the Board President, I would like remind you about some of the benefits to which you are entitled as member/owners. The main way for you to affect positive growth and change is to actively participate in elections for the Co+op’s Board of Directors or to serve as a Board member. This group acts as a fiduciary, overseeing the financial health and well-being of the store.
There are several other ways in which you are welcomed to exercise your rights as member/owners:
- Attend Board meetings. As a member/owner, it is your right to come to these meetings and provide constructive input to the Board.
- Review Co+op records. Another right you have is the ability to review the Co+op’s financial records. As a member/owner, our books are open for you to review if you wish.
- Speak with your general manager. I invite you to contact Tim Morrison, our interim general manager. He is willing to chat about the store’s status and can arrange meetings for those interested in reviewing our financial information. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meeting time.
—David Fellenz, President, LACM Board of Directors
