Mark your calendars for the Mustard Seed’s second Annual General Meeting (AGM). This year we will celebrate our first year as Hamilton’s only food co-operative, share how our co-op is doing financially, and elect new board members, along with other business. We will be issuing a package to all members in mid-February. Co-ops are democratically controlled, so attending the AGM is one of the best ways for our members to have a voice in how our store functions. Please plan on coming out to learn more about The Mustard Seed and show your support! We will have great local snacks to sample, and other fun surprises – plan to join us at the AGM on February 24th!
One of the important things that we do at each AGM is elect members to serve as our Board of Directors. This is a very important role, as our Board’s responsibility is to ensure that the needs and vision of our members are being met, including fiscal responsibility and upholding our co-op’s values. We are looking to grow The Mustard Seed Board to ten members this year in order to create a robust and resilient team that is diverse in its expertise and is representative of our membership. Mustard Seed members are responsible for electing the Board of Directors at the AGM, so we are asking you to consider who would make a great candidate. If you are interested in putting your name forward for the Board, you can read more on our website under ‘Governance‘.
