Open Meetings! YES. A few thoughts from Cath.
Why in the world would someone attend an open meeting hosted by Clipper City Co-op?
Here are some reasons that might resonate with you:
I hear that locally sourced snacks are served at most of these meetings, prepared by local chefs! I enjoy sampling new recipes!
I’ve met some really interesting people at the previous open meetings, including farmers and otherproducers of food and non-food products. Sometimes the open meetings even provide an opportunity to purchase local goods.
As an owner, I invested $200 to help bring a community owned grocery store into downtown Manitowoc and I want to hear what progress has been made!
I haven’t invested in the co-op yet, but I care deeply about the social and economic impact that local businesses stimulate. I’m attending to hear more about the membership driven timeline and the quarterly payment options.
As a volunteer serving the owner/outreach committee, I attend to listen how others talk about the membership drive so I can be effective when I share about the co-op.
I am an owner of the co-op and I attend to show my support for the hard work the committee is doing! I am even thinking about applying for the board.
I know some people who I want to recruit as my +1 so I am attending with them in hopes of increasing membership!
I completed the survey you have on your website and haven’t decided how I to become involved so I am attending the open meeting to learn more about the committee level work.
Some of my neighbors have Clipper City Co-op yard signs and I asked them what it was - I want to learn more about the co-op.
I value their commitment to the community, the strong leadership and planning that this group has demonstrated since 2013. It’s a great place to say thank you!
Clipper City Co-op has a place for you at the table! Come, join us!
