Wrap up of Week 2: Annie Colwell

Hello All!

I just wanted to say great job in NS! You guys are making some great headway. I just thought that I would give you my weekly update now seeing as we will be chit chating tomorow!
I met with Roy Mackin this week in Cambridge Narrows ( not quite Saint John area but close).
At the meeting were the two other individuals ( need to get names!) that are forming the economic development co-operative in that area. This co-operatives main goal is to help provide the resources for other co-operatives to"get off the ground". Basically they went over their ideas and plans for the area and then we discussed my role. Roy is holding an AGM/community meeting in the fall and he was hoping to have some assistance in their agenda, presentations, and research on certain types of co-operatives that he is interested in getting started ( such as a senior citizens complexe co-operative). On Wednesday I did some research for him and focused primarily on the development of the "Chez-nous" co-operative in Evagaline. I gave him a brief hist etc, plus websites and contact names of individuals that have started co-operatives. Today I did some admin stuff (ie photocopying of resource material) and contacted the NBCC (John Kelly: co-op placement director). He will be back on the 15th so I plan to meet with him and possilby do a short presentation with some of the graduating students and hand out some of the wonderful pamphlets. I also contacted the Fundy Funeral Home and I am going to get a breif interview done with the manager there in order to write a short piece wrt to a "successful co-operative" in NB ( in particular the SJ region). Other than that I have been speeking with Claire Gagnon and Maureen (wonderful help!) about making a few more connections that are a bit closer to home!! I am also looking forward to hearing from Neal "Film Co-op" friend, Adam Cameron when he heads my way! Hope everyone is well and I look forward to our call tomorow!
Take Care!

Annie :-)
