The West Michigan Cooperative is run by Producer and Member volunteers. Because we are all
volunteers, our overhead costs are low and fees to members and producers are kept at a minimum.
We need input from both Producers and Members at the Annual Meeting every year so that the West Michigan Cooperative can move forward and make necessary improvements to remain a successful business.
You are requested to attend the Annual Meeting so that you can find out what the Board of Directors
has accomplished in 2011 and bring new things to the table for the 2012. We will also be electing new
board members to replace those whose terms have expired.
Part of being a Cooperative is “cooperation” – we need everyone to pitch in to make the co-op a
success. Which opportunity to help looks interesting to you?
Board of Directors:
Has a minimum of 6 and maximum of 9 members, there are 2-4 seats open
The board meets once a month
Board members oversee the operation of the co-op and plan for its future
Community Relations – promote the co-op to members of our community
Member Relations – help coordinate volunteers for pickup and plan member events
Producer Relations – review potential producers and track producer licenses
Website Committee - oversee and manage the co-op website
New Building Committee – research potential future locations for the co-op
Pickup Night – greeters, checkout, setup and tear down
