  • Help our Board of Directors Grow!

    We will have three openings for seats on our Board of Directors, with three-year terms running from October 2020 - 2023.

     Ours is a working board, and we are fortunate to have nine dedicated neighbors who share their skills, talents, enthusiasm and time to bring the co-op’s goals to reality. We will be looking to fill the terms of three directors whose terms will expire; the new directors will serve until October, 2023. Read an outline of responsibilities

    If you are interested, please complete this short online form and submit it by Friday, Aug. 14. Voting for the new board is just one of the items of business at our Annual Meeting, scheduled for Monday, Oct. 5 (more details to come, so save the date for an evening gathering).
