HELLO FRIENDS
This is your Co-op Weekend Update for January 20, 2018.

COMMUNICATION
There is now a Weekend Updates Newsletter subscription form on our website – it’s located in the “widgets” bar, which is the right-hand column on our website, and it’s present on every page. So if you’d like to receive this update via email (which will have pictures, etc., in the future) you may enter your email and click Submit. MailChimp will send you a confirmation email to confirm that you would like to subscribe.
 
GT-I FUNDRAISER
We’ve received several quotes for the event insurance. Those numbers range from $380-600 (all local providers). We’ll be looking those quotes over at Tuesday’s meeting to decide which to select and seek funding through sponsorships and contributions. After we have the insurance certificate we can re-submit the facilities use form to reserve the building.
 
PHASE UPDATES
 
PHASE I
Bylaws: Tuesday night’s meeting will feature a final review of the Bylaws, at which time we will vote to ratify those Bylaws; making them official.
501(c)12: Our application is ready to submit with a ratified set of Bylaws.
 
PHASE II
No new updates for the feasibility study.
 
PHASE III
We’re very excited to share a 3D outside view of the Co-op headquarters at the January 23 meeting. Super Structures General Contractors, Inc. has worked to provide us a preliminary rendering of the outside of the facility – there have already been changes since the printing of the images so realize nothing is set in stone yet… We’ll have a list of features to be included in the floor design, and we’ll share the floor plan once it’s available.
 
KICKSTARTER
The necessary plugins are installed to our website to create and manage a kickstarter campaign on powhatancoop.org. We’ll discuss the website purchases required to move forward at Tuesday’s meeting.
 
NEXT MEETING
Our next meeting is this Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at the Powhatan County Public Library in the Large Conference Room starting at 6PM. We hope to see you there! Here is the agenda:
