The Dill Pickle is a cooperative corporation incorporated in Illinois. Our owners annually elect three seats to a nine-seat board of directors to oversee the General Manager through policy governance.
The Dill Pickle Board of Directors meets on the third Monday of each month, 6-8pm in the downstairs admin office of the store, 2746 N Milwaukee Ave. (Accessibility: the admin office is located in the basement, down a flight of stairs.)
Meetings are open to all owners who wish to attend as observers, with 10 minutes near the beginning of the agenda open for owner questions and comments.
The draft agenda is typically posted a week prior to meetings. If you would like to express your viewpoint on an issue coming before the board or suggest an item for next month's agenda, please contact us at email@example.com.
