Please keep in mind that if there are not enough votes on one alternatives for it to pass, another vote will be taken at the meeting counting only those physically present, so it is vital that as many as possible come to the meeting.
Come vote on changing the membership mark-up on certain items to account for breakage! Other issues up for vote include clarifying the language of the bylaws. Meeting attendance counts towards your work requirement.
If you have an issue to bring to vote, please send us your proposals before September 28th.
About our meeting structure:
Bushwick Food Coop has one big meeting per month, running on a three-month cycle. It starts with two Committees Meetings, where anyone who is interested can come and discuss issues that concern the coop as a whole. The third month of the cycle is dedicated to a General Meeting, where we vote on proposals that come out of the Committees Meetings or that are made by individual members before the meeting. The General Meeting, therefore, is primarily a forum for decisions, not discussions. Discussions primarily take place at the Committees Meetings.
20 persons or 40% of the membership need to be present (in person or through online voting) for quorum, and for a decision to pass, it needs to get 80% of the votes. If no alternative gets 80% of the vote, a new vote will be taken at the meeting, including only those physically present.
