Member Meetings are held twice per year. Twice a year Members connect with each other and the Board of Directors to get updates on the state of the co-op, current trends, issues and concerns, and to clarify the future vision of the co-op. In the spring Board of Directors candidate speeches are heard, voting begins and Member linkage occurs. In the fall, nominating committee nominations take place, and Member linkage continues. Hear candidate statements, vote, eat, mix and mingle.
ELECTIONS were held in-store (9am to 9pm daily) and via mail in ballot and we are awaiting the results. Hope you voted so your voice can be heard!
MIXERS/HEALTHY HAPPY HOUR
Join us for our Taste of Sevananda monthly mixers! Sample new products or delicious existing ones, hear from our expert wellness partners,chat with Board Members, GM or staff, purchase artwork from our Artist Alliance Members, listen to their music performances, or hear from our community partners about the great work they are doing in the community. It’s a great way to get a social taste of Sevananda and get to know each other outside of shelf stocking and ringing phones. Mixers are held the last Thursday of each month at select community locations throughout Metro Atlanta. Join us! Free for Members. Non-members are welcome with a $5 admission.
