Member, Worker, Producer & Community Partner Consultation
Our co-op is cutting edge in many ways, but not yet with respect to our by-laws. Please help us change this by giving us feedback on our new by-laws draft document. You can send us your comments, add them below as comments on this article, or you can write them directly into the document via the Google Docs links below.
We will have staff and Board Members on hand at The Food Hub from Jan 19 to Jan 28th, 2013 with copies of the new by-laws and posters highlighting the more important bits. We will be ready to discuss the by-laws and receive your input on how the West End Food Co-op should run. We hope to approve the resulting by-laws at the upcoming WEFC Annual General Meeting (to be held by the end of April of this year).
Our existing, rather generic and somewhat borrowed by-laws can be viewed and commented upon here.
A new set of by-laws prepared by our by-law committee (our 'Ideas Draft') can be viewed and commented upon here.
We know by-laws are not the most exciting documents, but they are the root of how the Co-op runs and so are worth a minute or two, or a half-hour, or an hour or three... Thank you for any effort you put into this.
