Between the April and May board meetings, the Board of Directors met for an intensive retreat, where they created a rough draft of a new set of bylaws for the Moscow Food Co-op. The proposed bylaws were drafted using a template provided by CBLD, a leadership cooperative which the Co-op subscribes to.
At the May meeting of the Board of Directors, this draft was presented, tweaked, and adopted as a working draft to submit for legal review. The Board then discussed the next steps it would take to present the draft to the members, including educating members about the role of bylaws and asking for member input. The Board has scheduled a member forum at the 1912 Center in the Fiske room on June 27th from 6:30-8:30 to discuss the bylaw revision.
