» More information
Dear contributors, sustainers and readers,
You are all invited to the Media Co-op Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, September 25 at 7 p.m. local time - doors at 6:30pm. 
It will be held upstairs at Chebucto Coffee (6340 Chebucto Road - Corner of Chebucto and Kline)
Annual General Meetings are where members come together to discuss the past year's successes and challenges, elect new board members, propose and vote on policy and approve the annual budget.

The reason the Media Co-op is a co-op, and not a regular non-profit, is because members have a say in developing the nature and activities of the organization. This is reflected in our day-to-day practice, while the AGM provides a formally recognized forum for us to get together and decide on how we want to see the Media Co-op develop.

At this AGM, the Media Co-op will be electing new board members, amending the bylaws, and reviewing finances. It would be great if you could come out, claim your membership status and truly help run your media!
Don't hesitate to contact the Halifax Media Co-op editorial collective with any questions at hmc@mediacoop.ca.
We hope to see you at the upcoming AGM!
The HMC Editorial Collective
The AGM will be facilitated in Montreal - we will participate via live feed and conference call.
