2018 Annual Co-op Market Owners’ Meeting
Please join us on Saturday, October 20th, at JP Jones Community Center, for our 10th Annual Co-op Ownership Meeting.
On our Shopper Survey earlier this year, Owners told us that you’d be more likely to attend our meeting if it were held on a weekend day and in a different location. We listened and made the change!
Please come and meet your board members, talk with your fellow Co-op Market Owners, and learn more about your co-op.
Keynote Address: This year you’ll also have an opportunity to learn about other developing co-ops in Alaska. Andrew Crow, our special keynote speaker, will share progress on efforts to grow retail food co-ops in Sitka, Kodiak and Anchorage.
Crow has been the director of the Alaska Cooperative Development Center at the UAA Business Enterprise Institute since 2007. He has worked with co-ops all over Alaska, and with other co-op development specialists from around the country. Before beginning his work with cooperatives he worked as a lawyer, a commercial fisherman, and as a Russian interpreter.
We’ll start at 3 p.m. with a social hour and light meal featuring sandwiches and salads from the Deli. Our business meeting will begin at 4 p.m. We’ll announce the results for the board election then. We’ll also hear updates from the Board of Directors and store management.
Childcare will be provided again this year by Girl Scout Troop 127. Bring the kids!
We’ve got lots of great door prizes lined up – including turkeys!
Come, learn, share and enjoy!
