(April 2007) — This year, PCC’s annual member meeting will be held in the historic Town Hall in downtown Seattle. “We’ve been dealing over the last few years with the ‘happy problem’ of outgrowing our meeting spaces,” says board chair Bob Cross. “It’s wonderful that more of our members wish to attend, so we have made this move to accommodate more of them.”

“In Town Hall we have a centrally located meeting space that will permit us to seat more members and serve our own great food,” says PCC Board Administrator Janice Parker. Parker notes that most meeting spaces have exclusive agreements with catering companies that would preclude us from serving PCC food.

During the delicious seasonal meal, a table captain will lead discussions with members and answer questions. After dinner, the board and management will present brief reports on the state of our co-op. Members then will meet this year’s board candidates, hear their campaign statements and ask questions.

As has become our practice, we’ll then focus on an area of interest to our co-op. This year, we’ll hear from David Lively, one of the pioneers in the organic industry and a leader in sustainable business practices. Lively is co-founder of the Organically Grown Company (OGC), one of our longtime vendor partners and the largest organic produce wholesaler in the Northwest. In 2006, Oregon Tilth named OGC “Outstanding Visionary of the Year” for its “innovation and creativity in forwarding the vision of a sustainable future.”

The Oregon Tilth award honors OGC’s program to be a more earth-friendly company and for encouraging collaboration in the organic food industry to address major issues such as global warming and social equity.
