The Expanded Strategy Team of 2019

Please join us for a focused set of 8 weekly meetings in February and March to hammer out a workplan for becoming a coop and expanding our organization. You do not have to attend all 8 meetings, but are expected to attend at least half of them.

All meetings will be held on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Eastern time (America/New_York) via mumble. Simultaneous interpretation in Spanish and English will be provided.

The meetings will take place starting on January 30 and run every week through March 20.
