One of our long standing aims is to involve our clients in the
management of the co-operative development services we offer, so that we
can be sure that not only the services themselves but also the way they are
delivered meets the needs of our clients. So Somerset Co-operative Services CIC was delighted in late autumn of 2011 to welcome 2 client members to the SCS Board. Alastair Mumford from Co-cars and MJ Ray from software.coop attended their first Board meeting in November 2011 and also joined us for a Xmas staff lunch in Taunton. Alastair and MJ have been influential in the development of a short term strategy and will be working together with the staff team on a long term strategy focusing on achievment of our aims as expressed in our mission statement. Alastair was elected to the Chair and has already made his mark by helping the team to focus on new market opportunities. We are excited by the potential of this new team to take these ideas forward!
