GreenStar Explores Collegetown Store Option; Bylaws Vote Returns in Spring

Thursday, 01 March 2012 13:00

 

By 12th Moon,

Council President

11-5-12thMoon-72dpiCouncil held its Feb. 14 meeting at The Space with GreenStar's newly hired Operations Manager, Sara Paulison, sitting in for our General Manager (GM), Brandon Kane, who was on vacation. Welcome and congratulations to Sara for the promotion and twelve years of service to our co-op.

After introductions and during our agenda review, we added a short item to the agenda, to update our Council Election Policy to reflect the change made two years ago incorporating two committees, the Governance and the Policy Monitoring committees, into one committee called the Governance and Monitoring Committee. The amendment passed without much discussion.

We next received the monthly GM Report that Brandon had submitted with the agenda packet, and noted that the stores are doing very well and are maintaining a steady pace of improvements to their infrastructures. The Information Services department has been busy upgrading our computer services to integrate both stores more fluidly and to protect us against internet down time. Oasis is progressing with planned improvements and the Deli Department is working on even more new offerings (see the article on page 1 for details). The Winter Farmers Market held in The Space @ GreenStar during January and February has been a great success, and provides one more example of the community service our ownership of the building has allowed us to offer.

Council Approves New Policy Governance-Style Policies; Seeks Election Candidates

Friday, 03 February 2012 21:51

By 12th Moon, 

Council President

11-5-12thMoon-72dpiCouncil held its January meeting on the 17th in The Space. We met on the third Tuesday rather than the normal second, following policy guidelines approved last year to avoid holding meetings on the "10% on the 10th" sales days. Look for our monthly meeting to be on the 17th again in both April and July this year.

Our General Manager (GM) Brandon Kane presented our first item of business, the monthly GM's Report. Brandon reported that both stores had a very good year, showing continued attention by staff to improving operations at both locations. He also reported that Oasis will be undergoing a reset of both Grocery and Deli areas, and that staff have started to compile email lists for all staff and would like to compile an email list of our members, in an effort to reduce paper consumption and for better lines of communication.
