East River Board President Resigns

This summer, coop board president Lenny Greher resigned from his office. Gary Altman was selected to replace him.

Why were shareholders not notified?

It’s part of a pattern: no financial update since a memo in March; no reply to our open letter in April; and now this.

In June, shareholders pledged to reaffirm the guiding principles of cooperative living: democratic governance, shared responsibility, constant education, and mutual respect.

We seek to improve communication among cooperators and with our board of directors, increase participation in our annual shareholders’ meeting, and help elect board members who demonstrate a commitment to these cooperative principles.
