Annual Meeting THIS Saturday!

Delicious, catered food by Ninevah, hoppin' music by Erev Rav... oh yeah, and a chance to hear from the Board candidates, mingle with other Co-op members, and ask staff all those burning questions you've been saving up! It'll be way better than a rainy day at home... 

(And if you want to bring your little ones with you, we'll have free childcare, too!)

It's the Annual Meeting!

So grab your calendar and write this down:

Saturday, Nov. 11th from 1-4pm at the Olympia Center. 

Parking is available on the street and in the Olympia Center's parking lot. 
It's free!

Here's our schedule:

1-1:15: Settle in. Grab some coffee and a chair. Kid's area opens at 1pm.

1:15-2:15 Presentations. There will be a 10-15 minute overview of the Co-op's activities and finances, followed by 3 minute speeches from each of our Board candidates. We'll have ballots and pens ready for you to vote.

2:15-3 Food, mingling, and talking with staff. Visit the booths of each of our main committees (Expansion, Local Farms & Products, Volunteers, Outreach & the Newsletter, Member Relations Committee and the Developing Cooperatives Committee) to chat with friendly staff and volunteers ready to give you the scoop on our plans and hear your suggestions. Plus, Tulip Credit Union will be there. If you finish up visiting staff at the booths,  have some more food and get to know your fellow Co-op members by playing Co-op Bingo!

3-3:45 Erev Rav Klezmorphic Orchestra takes the stage with high energy, family friendly, toe-tapping music! The Kid's area will close down at around this time, so your whole family can dance together. 

3:45-4 Closing. How did it go? Did you like our new format for the Annual Meeting? We want to hear from you!
