Management Collective Recruitment
Dear members,

This is a call for interested people to nominate to fill several vacancies on the Food Co-op Management Committee (MC).

The Food Co-op has gone through a lot of changes in the last few years and with these changes have come new opportunities (such as the cafe) as well as challenges (accommodation costs). While the MC requires a diverse range of skills and interests, we are particularly interested in hearing from people with a background or interest in finance/accounting/business.

The MC meets fortnightly and is responsible for setting direction and policy for the co-op in consultation with managers, volunteers and the wider membership. If you are interested in joining the collective please send an email introducing yourself, and include details of how you believe you could contribute to the Food Co-op’s future through joining the MC.

Thank you,
Food Co-op Management Collective

The Time for Renewal Is Upon Us…
With the end of the financial year behind us, it is time for everyone to renew their Food Co-op Shop memberships. Drop in, have a coffee, do a shop, and renew your membership. We look forward to seeing you soon for another exciting year in Food Co-operation.
Get Involved…
There are always heaps of projects around the Food Co-op Shop for which you can volunteer. The lunch team is always looking for volunteers to help with food preparation, service, and clean up. The MC (Management Collective) is looking for members to join their ranks. They are specifically looking for people with accounting/financial experience to serve as our Treasurer. Email us to find out more, and remember volunteering one hour per month entitles you to a month long 20% discount.
Stay warm and cosy,
-The Food Co-op Team!
