Here's a quick update on what our Chicago Market teams have been doing these past two weeks:
The Board met and voted on new leadership structure, creating a Board sub-committee dedicated to keeping us on track with our timeline; voted also on Board officer positions for the year (welcome our new Treasurer, Bill Petty!); and we got a briefing on our business pro forma from Funding Director, Greg Berlowitz.
We hosted a successful Harvest Co-op Pop-Up in Roscoe Village and work continues on next month's Thanksgiving pop-up on Nov. 19.
The MORE team met to develop a marketing plan to drive Owner growth and Owner engagement.
Board President Grant Attended Edible Institute, a think-tank style daylong discussion presented by the Edible Communications folks that discussed the future of food. Watch for a review of this from our newsletter writer, Annette Mambuca Owner #148, soon.
The Board elected new officers.
