Manager’s Message — March 2019

NLI’s Employees Committed to Serving Our Members

Annie TerraccianoWell, we’ve almost made it! Winter is nearly behind us and spring officially begins March 20.

I am excited for winter to be over and am ready to gear up for the nice weather to come. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead Sunday, March 10, and start enjoying the longer days.

NLI employs 60 dedicated people from our area who serve as the backbone of the cooperative. Their dedication to their careers and to their communities is the key to our cooperative’s success. Many of the people we employ grew up and went to school here. NLI offers them a challenging career with growth potential, apprenticeship opportunities, and a chance to learn a trade and purse an education while also enjoying the Pacific Northwest lifestyle. We love this community and work every day to continue our proud history of being an involved, supportive and community-owned cooperative.

Bylaw Amendments

The Northern Lights Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the membership voted to approve the amendments to the bylaws. This allows us to ensure that current laws are being followed, the needs of NLI members are being met, the cooperative continues to be financially sound and that the bylaws are easier to understand. A copy of the updated bylaws can be found on the Bylaws page.

Thank you to everyone who voted on the proposed bylaw amendments.

Cheers to spring!

Annie Terracciano
General Manager
