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.



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.



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.



The Dill Pickle Board of Directors meets on the third Monday of each month, 6-9pm at the Logan Square Neighborhood Association, 2840 N Milwaukee Ave. Meetings are open to all owners who wish to attend.


The April agenda will include updates on the expansion project and current store operations followed by policy monitoring on staff treatment and compensation and consumer treatment. Check back for a full draft! 

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 before the next scheduled meeting. The first 10 minutes of the monthly agenda is open for questions and comments.
