On the Agenda: What to expect at the Fall General Membership Meeting

UPDATE (10/17/12): In case you want to review the minute from the last General Membership Meeting, you can do so by clicking here. Don't worry... the pop quiz about this will be ungraded.

As we announced last week, the South Philly Food Co-op Fall 2012 General Membership Meeting is coming up on October 25. This time around we'll gather at the EOM Athletic Association in Pennsport (on Moore Street between Front and Second; see map for directions) from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m.

The General Membership Meeting is open to everyone — founding members, new members and those who just want more information on becoming a member.

If you've never attended a General Membership Meeting before, or if you're a co-op veteran who just happens to be an Order Muppet, read on to see what we have in store for you. (First order of business: pizza!)

6:00 p.m.: Get there early for pre-meeting festivities!

  • Member check-in

  • Mingle and pizza

We’ll supply the pizza — and here’s where the fun cooperative part comes in: You provide the drinks! BYO your favorite beverages for yourself or to share. Want to avoid all those plastic bottles? BYO Brita! (We’ll also have a SodaStream or two on hand.)
