PCC’s Board of trustees
Sound Consumer April 2019
February board meeting
The PCC Board of Trustees met on February 7, 2019. At this meeting we welcomed the new CEO of National Co-op Grocers, C.E. Pugh, to speak about trends in the grocery industry and how co-op grocers nationwide are responding. In addition, we invited the developer of our Madison Valley store to provide an update on that project. Management provided an update on 2018 marketing efforts and the upcoming plan for 2019. The board heard reports from its Audit and Finance, Governance and Membership, Management Development & Compensation and Social & Environmental Committees. The board also received an update from its task force established to review and evaluate PCC’s current membership benefit structure and to consider alternatives to the current membership benefit structure. CEO Cate Hardy reported on financials and co-op-wide projects and initiatives.
