Board of Director Interview Nick Dickison

| Board of Directors

Nick Dickison joined the Brattleboro Food Co-op as a shareholder-owner in 2018.  Nick is currently working in the kitchen, a job that they’ve done for most of their working career.  Last year, they accepted an appointment by the BFC Board to fill out another staff Director’s term, as the 2nd staff shareholder on the Board; the BFC bylaws require at least one staff Board member, but no more than two.  As Nick says, they’re learning as they go about being on the Board of Directors.  

GM SEARCH UPDATE: DECEMBER 2021

We have not provided an update for a while, but we’ve certainly been busy! In October, the Committee met with a couple of staff members to get some “on the ground” perspective about what characteristics would be ideal in the next GM. Normally, due to the strictures of policy governance, Board members do not reach out to employees directly (“The only official connection of the board to the operational organization, its achievement, and conduct shall be through the general manager.” – Policy C.1), so this was a rare opportunity to get a window into staff sentiment that will help ensure our next GM will be a good fit.

Proposed Changes to Bylaws 2021

| Board of Directors

Your Co-op Board of Directors takes quite seriously the fact that our bylaws are the Board’s agreement with you, who are our shareholders, about how we will run this business. And this business is a different kind of business – we are a “Cooperative.” And that has special meaning (check out the International Co-operative Alliance’s, .)
