Dear Outpost Owners,


After having a few days to digest our annual meeting, we wanted to take a moment to  recognize your level of commitment to our cooperative. Some of us shop, use re-usable bags and cups, donate time or money to Outpost organized community events, submit comments, fill out our surveys, read our website, follow and respond to our blogs, and attend owner events. We vote. And we celebrate our cooperative’s ongoing commitment to help our community. We even recruit friends and family to attend the annual meeting to support our values. 


The questions, ideas, concerns, and support  from our owners demonstrates tremendous commitment to cooperative values, passion for the democratic process, and a strong desire to participate in helping make our community and the world a better place. 


If you missed the meeting, it was awesome.


We heard and read both your concerns and your praises. Thank you!  Every single one has been reviewed and each will inform our decisions in a positive way as the co-op moves forward.


Like you, we love our cooperative. As board of directors we are owner-members like you. We want your participation. We understand the diverse needs of our owners and communities. 


Our cooperative is growing at a fast pace. Unlike when we first started out, as a business, we have passed the various financial thresholds that allow us to provide more to our owners, provide to more owners, and most importantly, with our financial strength and owner fortitude, we can provide more assistance to those in our community who need the support. 


Every level of participation is important as even the smallest of participation has a domino effect. We are extremely proud to belong with you as we use our passion to become better and our compassion to help others. 


Thank you again for your participation and commitment,


Outpost Board of Directors
