Cooperative Coffees Annual Meeting, Montreal… Early next month Bill will be attending the Cooperative Coffees 2004 Annual Meeting, Sept 9 – 12, in the fun-filled city of Montreal, Canada. The meeting begins on Thursday with the “Green Day” — including a cupping table of our green beans from all sources, a first-ever Cooperative Coffees Roaster’s Cup of Excellence, and presentations and discussion about the coffee cooperatives and the local contexts in which they work. The meeting is an opportunity to review the full report on the year’s operations, to participate in our strategic planning process, and to meet new members and get back in touch with our far-flung existing members. This year, we will also be participating in the TransFair Canada Fair Trade Round Table in a Saturday morning recess to our business as usual. Montreal is also considered the cultural capital of Canada, with countless music bars, theater and fine cuisine. So members should come prepared to work hard by day and play hard by night!

Speaker’s Bureau – Fair Trade Presentations, Tuscaloosa, Alabama – On September 29th, Tripp and Bill will travel to Tuscaloosa, where they will first speak to a group from the University of Alabama and then later to members of the First Methodist Church about Fair Trade and Café Campesino’s role as an all Fair Trade coffee company.
