Slow Food DC’s board consists of three working groups: Events, Communication, and Operations. Board members work together within each working group to help further the goals of Slow Food DC. The board is currently chaired by two co-chairs. Find out more below:
This working group plans, organizes, and implements events including but not limited to:
- educational events
- events with restaurants, chefs, and artisan food producers
- farm tours
- Slow Food University (educational activities to preserve culinary traditions, instruct on flavor education, and provide other educational opportunities to the Slow Food membership and public at large.)
The members of the Events Committee are responsible for all stages of event planning. The Events Committee also supports other SFDC working groups with their event planning needs.
This committee is responsible for all communications via email, the chapter website and social media. Members help create a monthly e-newsletter, respond to media inquiries, and produce press releases for major events. The team also manages email coming in through the email@example.com address.
Running an all-volunteer organization requires good organizational management. This committee ensures that the organizational aspects of Slow Food DC are running smoothly, including scheduling meetings and taking minutes, treasury duties, monitoring workflows, and ensuring accurate membership lists and email contact information
