GOAL: Energize our member-owners to support positive change around core issues that affect the Co-op and the community’s future.
Opportunity: Our member-owners share an interest in sustaining access to high-quality, nutritious food. We are committed to articulating the connections between this shared value and the issues that directly impact it, mobilizing member-owners to create change at the local, national, and global level.
Over the next 10 years we will:
- Proactively influence local, national, and global decisions that ultimately affect our business by identifying and articulating timely, relevant issues and actions.
- Implement strategies, communication systems, and opportunities for action to engage member-owners, serving as a trusted source of information while honoring the diversity of our community and member-owners.
- Be a community leader in promoting the growth of sustainable agriculture, energy efficiency and resource conservation.
- Forge alliances with regional food cooperatives and build community partnerships, to leverage our impact.
