General Assembly of Slow Food Metropolitan Brussels ASBL/VZW

Tuesday, 28 February, 2017

Dear Convivium members,

As announced previously, we confirm our invitation to the General Assembly on Tuesday February 28, starting at 19:00 at the social restaurant BEL MUNDO (Quai du Hainaut, 1080 Molenbeek-St-Jean).

BEL MUNDO is a restaurant connected to the Atelier Groot Eiland ASBL, in what used to be the Brasserie Belle-Vue. Located along the Canal, this location has been entirely renovated and offers two hotels, a restaurant as well as spaces dedicated to businesses and associations. Behind this complex, the Atelier Groot Eiland established its headquarters, installing an urban food garden comprising a greenhouse and a chicken coop. The fresh harvest is served in the restaurant.

The assembly is open to all members. Effective members or candidate effective members (see the list) who will not be able to attend are invite to let us if another effective member will be their proxy.

This is the agenda of the meeting:

• Small presentation of BEL MUNDO and of the Atelier Groot Eiland

• Report of the 2016 activities

• Presentation of the budget and of the books

• Discharge of the administrators

• Management board - departures and new faces

Feedback on the meeting with Paolo Di Croce, Secretary General of Slow Food international

• Projects and events 2017

• Proposals by members (see below)

 • AOB


Thanks to the engagement of our members and of the Management Board, our Convivium has organized a nice series of events of all sizes all along 2016.

Our Convivium lives thanks to the permanent engagement of its members. This engagement should not be limited to helping out at events (for which we thank you!), but shoud also be an active participation in the elaboration of our activities and events. For instance, our participation at Bruxelles Champêtre, one of our best results in 2016, was achieved thanks to the impetus of one of our members.

We would like to intensify this participation and to ask you to suggest activities that you would like to realize with the support of the Management Board.

For this reason, we invite you to send us by this Friday night 1 or 2 suggestions of activities or of participation in activities that you would like see carried out in Brussels, coordinated by Slow Food Metropolitan Brussels.

It could be a movie night, a drink, a walk, a rock concert… anything related to promoting the good, clean and fair message.

All suggestions will be debated during the General Assembly of next Tuesday.

Thank you in advance, we look forward to meeting you at the Assembly,  

Tom Smeets

President of Slow Food Metropolitan Brussels
