President's Note To Owners
Warm greetings to the owners of Central Co-op! Many of you know me as a new trustee in 2012, and my becoming Board President in the March meeting may have surprised you. I'm writing here on recent decisions of the board, and reasoning I have followed in these, to acquaint you with me. This is not a message speaking for the board.
At January's board meeting, a group of owners on Co-op staff presented a list of grievances related to governance practices, including the cancellation of voting rights of the Inside Trustee (IT). That position is defined as Ex-Officio in Bylaw 5.3: "The employees of the corporation, other than management shall elect an employee to the Board for a one, two or three-year term according to rules established by the employees." The other ex-officio trustee defined in Bylaw 5.3 is our GM: "The General Manager shall be an ex-officio non-voting member of the Board…" Only the GM position is defined as non-voting. Bylaw 5.4 states: "… each remaining trustee shall be elected by the membership and shall serve for a three-year term… No membership elected trustee my serve for more than three (3) consecutive terms." Note the distinction between trustees elected by membership and by employees. You can find the Articles and Bylaws on our website.
