2016 Annual Supper & Meeting
The 77th Annual Meeting of the Southland Co-op was held on April 18, 2016, with 92 members in attendance. The supper was beef on a bun, salads and a "CO-OP" cake prepared by our own Meat Department and Bakery staff. Highlights of the General Managers Report: we currently have 7,387 members and 150 staff. Last year's sales decreased by 6.2% to $55.9 million due mostly to the decrease of crude oil and petroleum prices following suit.. In June, equity payout will be made consisting of allocations of 5% on fuel, 10% on oil and 3.25% on all other commodities. Our Member Relations budget, in excess of $115,00, is used to support groups/projects. That budget remains the same for 2016. General Manager, Ken Bahuaud, thanked the staff, board and members for their support. The new board of directors received their Oath of Office. 2016-2017 Board of Directors: Pat Piche (Assiniboia), Marc Topola (Assiniboia), Robin Cristo (Assiniboia), Jim Achtymichuk (Coronach), Gil Trithardt (Coronach), Jeanette Moquin (Gravelbourg) and Marilyn McKee (Mossbank). Claude Fafard (Willow Bunch) retired from the board with 9 years of service. He was presented with a plague, a pin and a beautiful limited-edition picture. We extend our gratitude to Claude for his many years of service on the board. The evening ended with draws for several door prizes.
