Can you make a Local Food Summit 2014
Organizational Meeting?" Please fill out the following doodle poll
(with your email address so that we can be sure to follow-up):
the coming weeks we will have at least 2 organizational meetings to
begin the planning for the Local Food Summit 2014. The meetings will
discuss and brainstorm organizational structure of the planning team and
sub-committees, possible summit co-chairs, possible themes and vision
for the 2014 Summit, and logistics like dates/locations for the Summit.
All interested in helping plan the Summit are welcome and encouraged to
attend. Even if you think you would prefer to work on a sub-committee
instead of on the overall planning committee it is quite helpful if you
attend an organizational meeting. Please share the above doodle poll
with anyone who might be interested. Thanks!
If you absolutely
cannot make an organizational meeting but are interested or have
feedback please feel free to email one of us. Below are brief notes
from a Local Food Summit "future visioning" session that was held this
past summer which provide some food for thought.
We hope you can be part of the community team that builds the Local Food Summit for 2014!
Shannon Brines, Jason Frenzel, and Kim Bayer
