Agenda for Board of Delegates meeting, 5 January 2010

Posted by Tom Jan 03, 2010


If you are looking for the February agenda, it is at http://www.mariposa.coop/?p=691. There was a typo in the URL sent to the mailing list.

6:30 pm, 2nd floor, Calvary Church, 801 S. 48th Street
Open to all Mariposa members.

6:30-6:35 Introductions and approve agenda

6:35-6:45 Approve (revised in some cases) minutes from September, October, and December 2010 board meetings

Incremental policy changes

6:45-6:50 Staff bulk purchase benefit: (this was approved in principle at the last meeting, but we wanted it to be a separate decision from the budget)

In the policy on bulk shopping by staff, the maximum amount of the staff bulk purchase benefit shall be changed from $600 to $1000

6:50-7:20 Enforcement of workshift policies until a new set of membership policies exists:

Proposal #1 (Staff Collective, bracketed text is hopefully a hopefully friendly amendment from Daniel)

“Members who have missed workshifts may continue to shop, but will be denied key privileges, bulk order privileges, and credit privileges over $5 as described in the balance and workshift policies. Members are still expected to work with staff to make up missed workshifts [and the co-op reserves the right to suspend or expel members who persistently miss scheduled shifts].”

Proposal #2 (Karen):

Members who make a $30 donation to the co-op towards expansion will be excused from workshiftt obligations for the first quarter of 2010

Proposal #3 (Daniel)

Upon missing a scheduled workshift, members shall be billed $20 per hour of work missed in order to cover the cost of paying staff to find a substitute or do the work themselves. Once the shift is made up, the co-op shall refund 50% of this amount in the form of a credit to their account. Members who have missed workshifts may continue to shop, but will be denied key privileges, bulk order privileges, and credit privileges over $5, as described in the balance and workshift policies. Members are still expected to work with staff to make up missed workshifts and the co-op reserves the right to expel members who persistently miss scheduled shifts.

Elections/annual meeting

7:20-7:30 Set date (in March) for annual meeting. (60 days notice required)

7:35-7:40 Who is up for re-election?

Expansion

7:40-7:50 Report on status of Beulah (Robin? Daniel?)

7:50-8:00 Check in about board participation in fundraising

Policy development

8:00-8:25 Review/discuss relationship between Board, Restructuring Committee, and standing committees in developing new membership and shopping policies (Peter)

8:25-8:30 Check-out

If there is extra time, we will continue work on the personnel policy. This is quite likely as there are a number of topics that might have extensive discussion but probably most of them won’t.
