Next Governance Meeting: Monday, December 14th, 6:30pm

Hello members of the NYC REIC!

This is Eliza, Sam and Todd, reporting from the Governance working group. We are a relatively new working group (formed at an all working group meeting this past October) that has been charged with formulating a democratic governance structure and bylaws for the REIC. We held an open meeting on November 18th, where we laid out a proposal for electing a Steering Committee in January and developing a charter that would outline the rights and responsibilities this Steering Committee would have.

We have drafted a list of these rights and responsibilities and now we need your help to go through them and decide what makes sense for our goals as a cooperative and what doesn’t. We’re holding a meeting at 6:30pm this Monday, December 14th, open to all members, to receive feedback and move forward in finalizing the charter so that we can hold elections in January. The meeting will be held at 111 Nassau Street, 5th floor. 

Please join us on Monday to share your feedback and help us ensure that the REIC holds true to the cooperative values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equity and solidarity. We need your input!

If you can’t make the meeting, please feel free to send comments or suggestions to this email address (

In cooperation,

Eliza, Sam and Todd
