Welcome to the Fall Season!
Now that Fall is here, we would like to give a shout out and welcome to all of the UC Davis students starting the 2020-21 school year. Our city has felt so empty without the vibrance of the students and we are happy to finally see returning and new students bringing back life to the community.
It’s been a while since the board updated you on what we have been up to. The board has been working together with staff, behind the scenes to adapt to all of the new changes in our world. We have missed interacting with the community in the many events that typically take place at this time of year and look forward to when we can resume these in person.
To help keep safe during this pandemic, the board transitioned to virtual board meetings that Davis Food Co-op owners are welcome to attend. Dates of the meetings and details on attending virtually are on the Board section of our website, towards the bottom of the page. We would love to see you at our monthly meetings!
As many already know, we had a changing of the guards with our General Manager in June. As we said goodbye to Prassanna Regmi, our Operations Manager Laura Sanchez assumed the role of Interim General Manager and we are happy to say that this transition has gone very smoothly. The Board is now seeking qualified candidates to hire as the new permanent General Manager. If you or someone else you know is interested and feels they are qualified, please refer to the job posting here.
And speaking of more changing of the guards, during the summer we gained a new board member who we would like to introduce to you. Please check them out below and give them a round of virtual applause for joining our board.
