2018 Annual Meeting

All Hunger Mountain Co-op member-owners are invited to attend our Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 1, from 5pm to 8pm, at the Montpelier City Hall Arts Center. 

Update: We are now at standing room only for the Annual Meeting. It is possible we may have some chairs available for people but because of the limited space and large amount of people who have RSVP’d, we will try to get a seat for everyone but can’t make any guarantees. If you would like to register, please call 262-3202 or email us at info@hungermountain.coop

The Annual Meeting marks the culmination of the democratic process by which our member-owners elect their representatives, the Co-op’s Council. It’s also an opportunity for member-owners to hear news and updates about Hunger Mountain Co-op, participate in group discussions where their questions about the Co-op can be answered, enjoy a meal provided by the Co-op, win raffle prizes and mingle with their fellow member-owners and the Co-op’s staff.
