Though the election of our board of directors back in June could technically be considered our “first” Member-Owner General Meeting, that was really a special meeting for the specific purpose of electing the board (a task we will take up again in the spring).
So the South Philly Food Co-op’s General Meeting on October 17 really could be considered an historic event as the first ever meeting of its kind in the history of what we believe will be a longstanding South Philly institution.
This meeting, the first of biannual membership meetings, will be a discussion of what the SPFC has accomplished recently, our plans and goals for the next 6-12 months, and our first member vote on the SPFC Bylaws.
If you are not yet a member, we will be accepting membership applications at the meeting so you can join on the spot, take part in our historic first vote, and get us another step closer to our membership goals. The agenda for the Oct 17th General Member-Owner meeting can be found here. Afterward, we invite you to join us and your fellow member-owners for a drink and/or some snacks at a local watering hole (location TBA) so we can continue to get to know each other and build upon the steadily growing community that is the South Philly Food Co-op.
Time and Location Details:
Monday, October 17th, 6:30 – 8:00pm
The Church of the Trinity
2300 S. 18th Street (on 18th Street between Wolf and Ritner).
Get your vote on! See you there.
