It’s Time to Think About Running for the Board

Just Food Co-op - Thu, 06/13/2019 - 11:20am

Penny Hillemann, Board Director

If you think you might be interested in running for the Board this year, now is a great time to get ready. While the application deadline isn’t until  August 1, 2019 there are some things you can and should do now to help you decide.

Talk with a Board member or two at Coffee With the Board, held the first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and a tasty treat and ask us what it’s like to be a Board member.

If you haven’t attended a Board meeting in the last year or two, please plan to attend the June 26 or July 24 Board meeting before submitting an application. Join us for dinner at 6 p.m., meet the current Board members, and see what a Board meeting is really like. Please let us know a week in advance you’ll be there by emailing gm@justfood.coop.

We would be happy to meet with you one-on-one to answer any questions you may have. Email me at pennyh@justfoodboard.com. I would be glad to chat with you and set up a meeting to go over things in more detail.

Why run? First, and most importantly, there’s the satisfaction of working to keep Just Food a great place to shop and to plan for its future. We get a delicious meal served by our deli prior to the Board meetings. You have the opportunity to learn more about food, food systems, the grocery business, and governance, among other things. And you get to meet and work with a great group of people who share a commitment to the Co-op. Not to mention a small stipend which was added to compensate for the role in 2018.

This year we anticipate there will be three open Board positions for three-year terms. The election is in October, and while the new Board term officially begins in January, newly elected members are asked to attend the November and December Board meetings.

The Board meets monthly, typically on the fourth Wednesday of the month, for about 3 hours. It takes a couple of hours to study the materials prior to the meeting. We have an annual daylong planning retreat early in the year. Each of us takes turns participating in Coffee with the Board once a month for two hours about three times a year. There are various committees, assignments, and other meetings that come up from time to time that you might be a part of, and there are great board leadership training opportunities available. If you add up all of the time it would average about 5 to 12 hours per month.

To become a candidate, pick up an information packet at the Customer Service desk or download it from our website http://justfood.coop/about/board-of-directors/. Completed applications are due August 1, 2019 and may be emailed to nominations@justfoodboard.com. You can turn in the page that needs to be signed by email, by mail or at the Customer Service desk, but we prefer to receive your candidate statement electronically for easy reproduction in the election materials.

If you have questions, please get in touch with me at pennyh@justfoodboard.com or talk to any Board member. We hope you will consider running for the Board.

It’s a Great Time to Plant Trees!!!!

Father’s Day is almost here, and at Knecht’s Nurseries, we have thousands of trees in stock and ready to plant. The long days of early to mid-summer are an excellent time for newly planted trees to grow lots of new roots out into the surrounding soils and get nicely established.

At Knecht’s we carry over 300 varieties of trees in a wide variety of sizes and prices to fit your budget. We have evergreen trees, shade trees and ornamental trees. And our friendly and knowledgable staff on site will help you zero in on the varieties that will be best fit for the conditions on your property and add beauty to your landscape.

Bring Dad in this weekend so he can select a tree himself and get that shade or screening right where he wants to have it. To make it a bit friendlier for your pocketbook, don’t forget to use the $20 coupon you received through our Mail Chimp campaign for being on our e-mail mailing list! Coupon is valid from Friday June 14th through Sunday, June 16th – 2019.
