2014 Fall Members’ Assembly Meeting Wrap-Up

On Sunday, October 26th, we held our Fall Members’ Assembly Meeting, which concluded the voting period for the new Board of Directors and the four non-profit organizations to support in the upcoming year. We had 5 great candidates running for 4 available seats on the Board of Directors, and a slate of 20 local non-profits.

Here are your newly-elected Directors:

  • Joe Silva
  • Charles Hueter
  • Michael Handy
  • Cole Noppenberg

We look forward to working with the following organizations in 2015:

Congratulations, everyone!

The Board would like to thank everyone for running, and it would especially like to express its deep gratitude to the out-going directors: Erin O’Bryant and Johnny Livesay. These Directors have greatly contributed to the Co-op during their service on the Board, and their contributions will have long-term positive effects on Black Star for years to come.

During our meeting we heard from the Annual Report Review Committee, were updated by the Workers’ Assembly on the Co-op’s operations, and discussed our expansion plans. The membership approved three changes to the bylaws. Lastly, member-owners participated in a vision discussion about how our Ends might grow in conjunction with our expansion to a second location. Check out the wrap-up on the vision discussion here. If you have any questions about the meeting, please contact us at board@blackstar.coop.
