We really are one step closer every day. Some days that progress happens behind the scenes – getting equipment quotes, planning interior design elements, lining up suppliers, planning events to engage and expand the Co-op community of member-owners, drafting job descriptions to hire managers and staff.

Other days, the progress is more tangible. This week, as drywall goes up at the site, the physical store is really beginning to take shape – in ways we can see and touch and feel. It’s been a long time coming and there are still challenges to overcome, but thanks to the support of the Co-op community, the space is being transformed – day by day – into the East Aurora Co-op Market we’ve all envisioned.

As the physical space continues to take shape, the Co-op community also grows and evolves. The East Aurora Co-op is currently seeking potential candidates to run for and fill three open three-year seats on the Board of Directors. The elections will take place at our Annual Meeting in May 2016, with terms beginning June 1, 2016.

If you’re interested in being a part of the cooperative leadership team, you can learn more here, or by contacting [email protected]. Completed applications are due by February 22.
