Posted onLeave a comment

HELLO FRIENDS
This is your Co-op Weekend Update for January 28, 2018.
I apologize for the delay in getting this weekend’s update out – there was a personal illness and an ER trip involved, but everyone’s ok now. I’ll work to get the weekly and monthly newsletters out asap.
Here’s a rundown of the goings-on this past week:
GT-I FUNDRAISER
We’re working on new flyers and advertisement for the event. As well as a new website launch. Expect to see that by the end of the week.
PHASE UPDATES
PHASE I
Bylaws were ratified on 1/23; vote 3-0. The updated and approved version is available on our website at About > Bylaws.
Our 501(c)12 application is being submitted this week.
PHASE II
No new updates for the feasibility study.
PHASE III
No new updates for the Co-op building.
MEMBERSHIP
Our membership application is available on the website now, and we’ve made it incredibly easy and safe for you to join the Co-op. Visit our site, click on About > Membership > Apply Now. Membership is the easiest way to show your support, and helps the Co-op pay for marketing material, advertising, and other expenses as we move forward.
KICKSTARTER
We are almost ready to launch our Kickstarter Campaign to fund the Co-op. We’re working on a few details to the page, and we’ll be ready to advertise and answer any questions – expect a LIVE video from us when we launch.
NEW BOARD MEMBERS
Please welcome our two new Interim Board Members: Bryan Caudle and James Temple. Bryan and James are both passionate about improving our community, especially through Broadband, and will be representing Districts 1 and 5 until we hold our first election. Bryan has over 25 years of experience as an IT professional, and much of that specifically focuses on Internet access and data center. James is a veteran of the United States Air Force and a business owner, and believes in the power of technology to enable communities to reach their full potential. Their bios are featured now on the About > Board of Directors page at our website.
NEXT MEETING
Our next meeting is Tuesday, February 27, 2018, at the Powhatan County Public Library in the Large Conference Room starting at 6:30PM. We hope to see you there! We’ll have a meeting documents folder to share in the next week or two with an agenda, and any other pertinent documents.
