Updates & Committee Reports

  • Finance Committee Report
    • No finance committee meeting this month
    • No major changes this month from where we have been; we are treading water}
    • Matt reported November sales were what were expected, but not as good as hoped
    • New data analysis shows a correlation with Trader Joe’s opening, but the biggest impact seems to have been in November
    • The new Aldi opening appears to have affected the Cedar Rapids store
  • Coralville Public Library Project
    • The director approached Matt and Shawn in November about their café space and asked to submit a proposal
    • They feel it gives us a chance to get our name and brand out into the community in a new way
    • The Board needs to approve the lease, as it is expected to be over $10,000 per year (minimum of $750/month lease, up to $2,500/month maximum)
    • The Board needs to consider whether a member vote is required
    • Matt thinks we can make our equipment changes for under $15,000: espresso machine, self-service cooler, IT equipment, but no plant changes to their facility; all the equipment we would buy for the library could be used in the future at the main stores if needed
    • NPC management is thinking about ways to engage new customers with this opportunity and identify marketing options
    • Cal made a motion to authorize Matt to move forward; Zara seconded; Jon requested discussion;
    • Cal conducted a straw poll to ask if this is worth pursuing: 6-0-0 agreed
    • This is arguably an extension of the Coralville operation, not the creation of a new facility
    • Cal asked if approving this is in line with the spirit of the articles of incorporation
    • It’s questionable if we can be successful in expanding our reach if we have to have a member vote every time we do something like this
    • Cal recommends we have a threshold for significance
    • When asked for her opinion, Caroline Dieterle pointed out that this is not a permanent expansion, and is a much smaller undertaking than others we have done in the past
    • Caitlin asserted that the by-laws article is imprecisely written, and does not provide adequate guidance for this type of opportunity
    • Cal suggested we could better define this in the by-laws, which the Board is ableto approve without a member vote, but we would be transparent about it
    • General sentiment that we need to be positioned for success and growth
    • Cal stressed that our contract with the library would need to have sufficient legal language to protect our interests in the event of big problems in the future
    • To Do: Governance Committee to look into how to handle the articles of incorporation and/or bylaws
    • Cal moved to approve the Coralville Library project, subject to legal review of the lease; Zara seconded; approved 6-0-0
  • Update from Matt about hiring a consultant for project management
    • Matt informed the board of a temporary consultancy relationship with Patrick Brickel, one of the current board members
