On August 29, 2021, we gathered at Geercrest Farm for our 2021 Owner Annual Meeting. We were so glad to be meeting in person at the farm this year! A huge thank you to Geercrest for hosting us on a warm and sunny afternoon. And many thanks to the local businesses who contributed to our event: Silver Falls Brewery, Franchere Wine Co., and Wicked Goodness.
Approximately 35 Co-op owners attended this year. We enjoyed complimentary wine, beer, corn puffs, and live music from Matthew Nelson Price! We also talked about Co-op business, including an overview of our Annual Report, a Capital Campaign debrief, ideas for moving ahead, and Reimagining Our Co-op together!
We appreciated our volunteers and outgoing Co-op Directors, Kelly Hilton, Marc van Anda, and Flora Gutierrez. We are so grateful for your years of service on the Board, and for sharing your vision with our ownership and greater community. We'll miss you on the Board! Here's a fun picture we snapped of our 2020-2021 Board of Directors:
Owners also voted (in-person and virtually) to approve four new board members! We are so thrilled to welcome Beth Myers-Shenai, Brent Stuntzner, Karyssa Dow, and Kevin Mowrey as our newest Co-op Directors. Beth, Brent, Karyssa, and Kevin will join Becky Gilliam and Cayla Catino on our Board of Directors.
Learn more at our Board of Directors page and join us for our upcoming Board meeting at Gear Up on September 8th at 5 p.m. All owners are welcome at board meetings. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out for the Annual Meeting. We look forward to the year ahead!
