Start-up co-ops like the East Aurora Co-op Market are an exercise in community-building.
Beyond the physical brick and mortar store, a strong co-op is, at its core, a community of like-minded member-owners united in its commitment to bring an idea to life and dedicated to supporting the co-op’s sustained growth and success. There are many ways to get involved and all forms of engagement make the co-op community stronger. You can explore opportunities to get involved HERE.
One way to help guide the development and growth of the co-op is to serve on the nine-member Board of Directors. The East Aurora Co-op is currently seeking potential candidates to run for and fill three open three-year seats. The elections will take place at our Annual Meeting in May 2016, with terms beginning June 1, 2016.
