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.
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?
7:40-7:50 Report on status of Beulah (Robin? Daniel?)
7:50-8:00 Check in about board participation in fundraising
8:00-8:25 Review/discuss relationship between Board, Restructuring Committee, and standing committees in developing new membership and shopping policies (Peter)
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.
