In July, the Co+op Board hired Sierra Hirtzel as our new General Manager. Sierra has valiantly served the Co+op as Interim General Manager since September of last year. Through her stalwart leadership, the Co+op pioneered new methods for purchasing budgets, marketing, and departmental tracking—which is exciting news in the grocery world!
Adding to this all but typical year for the the co+op, the board went through a significant change as three board positions opened when life and career changes took board members out of state.
Thank you all for casting your vote in the 2016 Board of Directors election!
We have tallied the results and we are excited to announce that Dael Goodman, Scott Kamen, Lisa Pena, Angelica Rubio, and Xochitl Torres-Small have been elected to the open spots on the MVM Co+op Board of Directors. Valarie Holliday has been ratified as the staff member on the Board. The by-law change was approved.
It's that time of year, Co+op Owners: Time to vote on your Board of Directors and their proposed bylaw changes!
