Being a director has presented a


different set of challenges for Dean. “Keeping up with changes to all the rules and regulations governing a co-op is a never ending job,” he said. “Sometimes you have to make tough decisions that affect the members, including yourself, your friends and families.”

When asked what he will miss most about serving on the board, Dean replied, “I’ll miss coming to the board meetings every month.”
