Individuals from all over the globe came together last Tuesday, October 24th, for RChain Cooperative’s first annual membership meeting. The energy was invigorating especially for the many activists that have been working closely but remotely the past year. There is no better way of building relationships then face to face interaction. Everyone was pleased with level of engagement during the meeting and networking. We continue to have an open culture of trust and transparency. This is why we continue to live stream all of the most important events including our debrief’s every Wednesday.
Newly elected board members will start their respective term(s) from November 1, 2017. Our thanks to the leadership that stepped up and held board member positions in the interim. The new board holds its first meeting in November when they will decide on the course of action related to the proposals voted.
We invite all members to continue discussing and proposing ideas to improve governance and other areas. RChain’s co-op is setting a new standard for openness since we as members have the opportunity to influence the direction of the co-op.
Below is the recording of the annual members meeting with timestamps.
