January’s Cave to Coop special is Beatrix Brie Buttons from Blythedale Farm in Corinth, Vermont. These diminutive two-ounce creamy mouthfuls are delicious on their own, as part of cheese plate or paired with ripe fruit or seasonal chutney. Get them this month for the special price of $1.99/each.

One of the exciting things about being part of a cooperative like Wild Oats is the ability to have a role in governing the store by either electing a board of directors or serving as a board member yourself. Each fall at our annual meeting, the board presents a slate of qualified candidates to the co-op owners (that’s you!) to fill three seats. We’re looking for candidates who have a passion for food, community and business and will bring constructive leadership and sound judgement to the governance process.
The nine-member board is responsible for ensuring organizational performance on behalf of all owners and operates using the Policy Governance model. This system allows the board to maintain accountability while focusing on providing leadership around our ‘big-picture’ mission–strategic planning, financial oversight, board perpetuation and owner outreach.
Board members are elected for three-year terms with three members being elected each year. The three board members whose terms expire at this year’s annual meeting are all running for re-election. The ballot, however, is not limited to three nominees, plus it is helpful to start a conversation now even if you are considering future openings on the board.
If you, or someone you know, would be interested in joining the board, you can get more information about the requirements & responsibilities on our website. Our next meeting will be held on Monday, August 19, at 7:15 pm, and interested candidates should plan to attend this meeting to get a sense of what goes on and how the governance process works.
