EA Co-op Seeks Events and Outreach Coordinator

The East Aurora Cooperative Market, Inc., slated to open in 2013, is hiring! The position, which is part-time, is for an events and outreach coordinator.

Co-op efforts have been ongoing for nearly three years; the typical start-up process averages three to five years. Activities to date include building the member-ownership base (currently 660 member-owners), holding workshops, training volunteers and running a Mini Market with a variety of fresh and local goods for sale on Thursdays and Saturdays. Behind the scenes, the board of directors has been working on board policy and governance, site selection, marketing and budgeting. In May, the organization held its first annual meeting of the member-owners, which focused on successes to date and an overview of plans for the future.

The co-op board is hopeful for a 2013 opening of the market, which will be located on or near Main Street in the village. "Though we've got plenty of work to do before we officially open, now is the time to bring an events and outreach coordinator on board," said Mary Aiken, president. "We have had a strong presence at many community events, and held many of our own, but having someone dedicated to this task will enable us to reach even more people and potential member-owners."

The events and outreach coordinator will also manage the regular dissemination of information about the co-op in outlying areas that are within the co-op's trade region, such as Holland, Arcade, Marilla. and Colden.

All the details about the part-time events and outreach coordinator are on the EA Co-op website, at http://eastauroracoop.wordpress.com/2012/08/03/were-hiring/. Additional inquiries may be made via email, to sheila@eacoop.com.

Interviews begin the week of Aug. 13.
