CVPP Planning Meeting - Get Involved!

Please join us for this meeting if you are interested in helping out with the 2013 Chicago Veggie Pride Parade!

This will be a general planning meeting with a focus on Outreach Committee effort. However, during this meeting we will touch on all aspects of the parade including: Outreach, Operations and Finance.

While we will have fun planning, please keep in mind that this is not a social event but a business meeting.

It will be a great learning and volunteering opportunity which will include both: leadership and supportive roles. Everyone is welcome!

Please be on time as after this meeting the most of us will go for the Vegan Dining and Charitable Concert.

Please use Comments area in the bottom of the event page to offer/ask for rides and post any general questions or comments.

Join or login to comment.

      * We will meet weekly until the parade with the last meeting falling on 5/27. Since this is a holiday weekend there may be a smaller group but everything should be ready to go by then anyway
      * We are trying to drive people to the meetup page to register so we can get their info and so that we can find volunteers
      * At the next meeting we'll go through the operations list and make sure tasks get assigned or at least identify which tasks we need to reach out for volunteers for

    Hi! I would like to attend the planning meeting at 3:30PM on April 27th and be in a supportive role. I am new to the area. I live in the River Forest /Oak Park area. Would someone like to carpool and I would pay for gas or would someone, please, give me public directions from the blue line or the green line?

    Thank you for any help that you can provide?

    Which Whole Foods Market is it? I am not familiar with the area? Thank you!

    • Vadim

      Hi Lee, Sorry for confusion about Whole Foods (where we usually meet). This time we are meeting right after Vegan Bake Sale at the same location: Ground Control Restaurant
      3315 W. Armitage Ave., Chicago. Look for a separate entrance next (east) to the main entrance door. Hope to see you there!
