Here is today’s Grassroots-Grows-Capacity Step from our Email Blast Let’s Chat!, which went out last night:
Dear Honest Weight Food Co-op Member-Owners, Staff, Families, and Friends:
This morning, Saturday, from 10:30AM to noon, the Honest Weight Food Co-op’s (HWFC) Board will host an Information Session with the Co-op’s Attorneys.
To prepare for the information session, you’ll want to read this week’s Inside Scoop email and think about what you would like to know from the Co-op’s attorneys. You’ll also want to read Critical Legal Information, by Member-Owner and attorney, Kate Doyle, for a clear, concise explanation of Member-Owners’ rights in a cooperative corporation:
After the presentation, please stay around to discuss the Member-Owner Labor Program and a Member-Owner driven HWFC!
To keep up with the latest, please visit the HWFC Info Hub for information, updates, and opinions from our Co-op community:
The HWFC Member-Owner Petitioners
Saturday, November 14th
10:30AM – 2:30PM
200 Wolf Road, Colonie
WHAT TO BRING:
A list of questions for the Co-op’s attorneys and a snack!
After the meeting, please stay to discuss the Member-Owner Labor Program and a Member-Owner driven Honest Weight Food Coop!
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Grassroots Action: One HWFC member-owner individual, family, and employee at a time …we can reach every HWFC member-owner if we ALL work it
Build Capacity: If everybody does their little bit (or a bigger bit if they can),
we build our capacity day-by-day
Have faith: It simply works!
YOU are the PR: Be factual, be calm, don’t attack anyone personally, and please do be impassioned about saving our member-owned co-operative!
This is co-operative, in action!
