Cooperative Governance 

The Dill Pickle is an Illinois for-profit cooperative corporation incorporated in Illinois. Our owners annually elect three seats to a nine-seat board of directors to oversee the General Manager through the use of policy governance.

 

BYLAWS

Our bylaws set out the terms of co-op ownership, election and duties of the Board of Directors, duties of officers, duties of the General Manager, and meetings of the ownership. This document is set by the Board and changes are approved by a vote of the ownership.

 

POLICY REGISTER

The Dill Pickle Board of Directors uses a formal system known as policy governance to establish a structure for its work. The Policy Register is the document which sets out the details of how we apply policy governance. The Register describes the roles and responsibilities of the Board, and the methods it uses to oversee the co-op.

 

BOARD MEETINGS

The Dill Pickle Board of Directors currently meets on the third Wednesday of each month, 6-9pm at Second Shift, 3432 W Diversey Ave, Floor 2. Meetings are open to all owners who wish to attend. 

UPCOMING AGENDA

If you would like to suggest an item for the agenda, or to express your viewpoint on an issue coming before the board, please contact us at board@dillpickle.coop before the next scheduled meeting. The first 10 minutes of the monthly agenda is open for questions and comments.
