The Co-op has hosted Pressing Matter for several years now. This year, they have indicated that it isn't worth their while to travel to the island unless their ferry and accommodation costs are covered. The Co-op will be happy to pay their ferry fees and we are hoping that someone on the island will be able to provide free accommodation for 4 people for 2 nights. They are flexible with their dates in October. If you are able to help with this, please call Julia or Gregg at the Co-op.🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Hornby Island Co-op
Board Update Regarding the Leadership Transition Process
September 18, 2022
On behalf of the Board of Directors:

On behalf of the Co-op Board of Directors, we would like to thank Lisha Scott for her years of service as the General Manager and Team Leader. We wish her all the best and thank her for being with us through many ups and downs including a global pandemic! Yesterday, September 17th, 2022, was Lisha's last day. The Board would also like to thank the Senior Management team and the department managers for their continued leadership, and the entire staff, for all they do to make the Co-op store such a bright and beautiful place.

Over the past few weeks, the Board Chair has reached out to Federated Co-op (FCL) and other Co-ops to discuss leadership transitional strategies and best practices. We have met with each member of our Management Team and all have assured us that the Co-op can and will continue to run as usual. We appreciate the additional workload and responsibility taken on by the Senior Management Team and hope everyone will offer their full support. The Board and Senior Management believe we have an opportunity to use this change period to fully review our Co-ops’ organizational structure and explore the best practices of our sister co-op’s systems. The board is working to ensure that we find interim resources to assist where required. We know that identification and selection of new leadership may require a long process and FCL has assured us that they have the resources to assist in our annual strategic planning and budgeting process and may also assist in providing temporary leadership assistance and in benchmarking our operating practices and internal systems.

Thank you for your patronage and patience during this time. We want to assure you that we will work to keep our employees and members informed as this process evolves.

Best regards,
The Hornby Island Co-op Board of Directors
