Position: Vice President

I’ve been a member since we arrived in Potsdam in the Summer of 2016. Like many others, signing up for a Co-op membership was one of the first things we did when making the North Country our home!As newer residents of Potsdam, the Potsdam Co-op was a place that made us feel welcomed in the community.  I know that in order to bring healthyoptions to the community, the Co-op needs to maintain a healthy balance outside and in. I'm eager to get involved, and do my part to benefit this vital community resource in any way I can.I have a strong background in non-profit program management, and am hoping I can bring some of my passion for process improvement, staff wellness, and community outreach to the table.  It’s not easy being a vegetarian in North Country, but the Co-op not only makes it possible, it makes it enjoyable as well. I love all of the local produce, as well as the wide selection of items that cater to allergies and diet preferences.

About Board Service

In general, the Board is responsible for the financial viability of the Co-op. The Board evaluates and approves the Co-op Budget, evaluates the General Manager’s performance, sets goals and objectives for the Co-op and makes sure the Co-op continues to operate in accordance with and in the spirit of its mission and by-laws.

The Co-op Board expects Board members to attend and participate in monthly 2-hour Board meetings (held the third Tuesday of each month). Certain annual events hosted by the Board also require Board attendance, such as the Co-op Annual Meeting, the staff holiday party, and the Co-op Open House. The Board accomplishes a great deal of work in committees and the Board expects members to participate in committees of their choosing. Currently the Board has the following standing Committees: Executive, Finance, Governance/Nominating, Education/Outreach, Membership/Marketing, IT, and Buildings and Grounds.
