It’s that time of year again when we gather for Karma’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and provide you with an update on the health of our Co-op. There, we’ll review the Board’s activities over the past year, the co-op’s financial status and board member changes. We’ll also take this opportunity to share some exciting news with you about strategic planning we’re engaged in for the Co-op. As well as look back on other milestones in the past year including our social media and marketing initiatives and new changes to our bulk bins. This year has been a busy one for the Karma board. We have been fortunate to have a number of new members join our ranks to support these new and exciting initiatives. Though ultimately the AGM signals a changing of the guard and we need our members to join us in continuing to provide valuable leadership and support going forward. From my personal experience, being on the Karma Board has been an intensely rewarding experience. I am both humbled by and appreciative for the opportunity to become President and the valuable skills and experience I have gained throughout my time. It has been an inspiring and remarkable journey working as part of such a value-driven, passionate, and dedicated team and something that is totally unique to the community that Karma cultivates. I am certain that spirit will continue to drive the Co-op forward.
