Strategic Plan for 2013-2017

January 10th, 2013 by Kathie

Strategic Plan double truck new endsAt the December 2012 board meeting, a five-year strategic plan was unanimously adopted to set the direction for the Food Co-op’s future.

“A strategic plan is an opportunity to look towards the future that you want to create and then assess where you are currently, then look to align efforts and resources,” said Sam Gibboney, board president. “It’s that budgeting of effort and resources that the strategic plan helps an organization to make the daily choices that we have. Any organization, any person, particularly in this day and age, is faced with a multitude of decisions every day where they can put their attention, put their time, put their money, and the Co-op is no different.”

Strategic Planning Update – 9/2012

September 16th, 2012 by foodcoop

We are in the home stretch of our strategic planning process.  The plan is really coming together and it is exciting to see all the work put in by everyone.

As our General Manager, Kenna, has said, the plan builds upon our successes and still takes us into bold (but not necessarily radical) territory. One sure outcome of this planning process is for The Food Co-op to claim its place as the retailer of choice for local and regional products. While ‘eating local’ may seem somewhat common place nowadays – it is still a courageous idea that reverberates across our community and region. We are truly re-building our local food systems one step at a time.

The Board of Directors will be considering the draft strategic plan at our October 16th meeting. We will offer feedback to our consultant and make changes. If all goes well, we hope to approve the final plan at our November meeting. These meetings are, of course, open to the membership. So please come and join us as we put the finishing touches on our strategic plan.
