It’s that time of year — spring has sprung and the call for democracy is in the air. I won’t talk politics, but there is one thing that I hope is on all of our minds, and that is raising our voices! With that in mind, I urge you to take a few minutes to let us know what you think about the Co-op when you get the Weavers Way Member Satisfaction Survey in your email this month.
Members make a difference. Over the years, we have seen many significant programs and improvements suggested, driven or inspired by members, such as our low-income discount program Food For All, the Senior Discount program and the EasyPay Pays You 2% incentive. This past year has also seen the opening of our third store and huge growth for the Co-op. There has never been a more important time for members to share their perspective.
Hearing our members’ concerns and viewpoints and developing the means to address them is one of the things that sets co-ops apart from other businesses. That is why we need every member to participate. We want to hear what you have to say. Your feedback guides us, telling us if we are on the right track. Is Weavers Way serving you? Let us know. The survey is expected to be delivered to your in-box June 10; we’re looking for them back by June 24. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-843-2350, ext. 119, if you don’t get a survey, or have questions.
Member participation is integral to the overall health of any co-op — democracy without participation is no democracy at all. So be sure to take the Member Satisfaction Survey!
