Dear EEFC Members,

Mark your calendars! In case you haven’t heard, the East End Food Co-op Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 23rd. We will be holding the meeting online via Zoom again this year and an invite will be sent out to you in early September. I hope that you will join us as we look over the work that we have done during the past year to build a strong foundation for the future. We will have some important updates to share about our expansion and fundraising efforts. The Board will also be asking members to vote on changes to the Rules of the Co-op that would allow us greater flexibility around the timeframes and secure voting methods in future elections with the aim of increasing member participation in our elections. Look for more information on these proposed changes in the AGM packet that will be available in the weeks before the meeting.

The AGM is also time for our Annual Elections. As a Co-operative, we are democratically governed by Directors who are elected from our membership and we are now accepting nominations for candidates for this year. For inclusion in the AGM packet, please fill out the nominations form (available in-store and online) and return it by Friday September 3rd.

Board Skills & Experience Desired:
  • A passion for EEFC!
  • Experience in fundraising and capital campaigns
  • Media relations and public affairs
  • Food Retail experience
  • Legal Background
  • Expertise in the co-op business model

Looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting in September!

In cooperation,

Chris Galloway, Board President
