From Your Board

With Board Chair, Todd Sweet

Thank You, Eunice

We wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to Eunice Bucknerboone for her years of service as a board member. She recently stepped down in order to focus on other obligations, and will be sorely missed. Eunice served on the Owner Outreach Committee and was always an engaging presence during in-store events. In board meetings and retreats she made sure we all remembered the core of our co-op: community. Eunice often spoke of that welcoming vibe when you walk into the store and how important that is to a thriving co-op. Please say thanks if you see Eunice in the store.

GM Search Update

The board also wanted to provide a brief update on the search for a new General Manager. At our last meeting we chartered a search committee consisting of three board members, and approved an aggressive timeline for the search. Since then we finalized the job description and began posting it in local and national outlets, including several industry-specific job boards. The position has also been listed on the Common Ground website, and we welcome your help in sharing it as broadly as possible with your networks. We will provide regular updates to you as the process continues.
