Here's a little note I received from the folks at the VFC about the annual members' meeting this coming Sunday:
Vancouver Food Co-op Annual Member Meeting
The Co-op's annual member meeting will take place on Sunday March 29th - 6:00 - 8:00 pm at St. Lukes Episcopal Church at 426 E. Fourth Plain Blvd.
This event will be a Potluck of snacks, hors d'oeuvres, and finger foods. So, please bring a healthy snack or refreshment for everyone to enjoy!
This is a member meeting. Guests are welcome, although not able to vote, unless of course they join at the meeting.
PLEASE ATTEND THIS IMPORTANT MEETING. The Co-op continues to make progress towards opening a store. The Board wants and needs your input. Being a Co-op member means having a voice in setting Co-op policies, participating in important decisions, and helping make the Co-op successful. The Annual Meeting is one of many forums for you to play a role, meet people, and stay informed on our activities in the past year. We will also highlight the work of our Action Committees and their goals for the coming year.
AGENDA: Reports from the Board of Directors; Reports from Action Committees; Financial Reports; Voting on amendments to the Bylaws; Meet the Board candidates and a discussion about a potential site option.
Additionally, VFC was very recently presented with an interesting site option to consider and we would like to let you know a bit more about it at the meeting. We want to find out how you would like to be involved in the consideration of this potentially exciting option.
At this point, the board and some additional committee members are moving forward by evaluating what the new concept for the space could be, its likelihood of success, and how it aligns with our goals. Your support and involvement is key!
We welcome any comments or questions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 694-8094 and a board member will get back to you.
We sent out a letter to all members with more detailed information as well as the restated bylaws and Articles of Incorporation, if you do not receive the letter by Monday please let us know and we can email you the info.
We look forward to seeing you on March 29th at 6:00 PM at Saint Luke's Episcopal Church, 426 east Fourth Plain Boulevard, Vancouver--and remember to bring a snack or non-alcoholic beverage to share.
