Peer Network

The Co-op Housing for All Peer Network is a new group of members who are strengthening and growing the co-op sector with new governance solutions and constructing new co-op homes.

The Peer Network is a chance to network and share resources and ideas to fuel more co-op housing growth and offer support to fellow co-operators pursuing the vision of Co-op Housing for All. Opportunities and activities include:

  • Events like networking breakfasts and workshops on growth and development.
  • A video series where co-op members share their experiences, lessons learned, and successes.
  • Sharing first-hand accounts of your experience with development projects and new governance solutions like unified co-ops.

Peer Network members can participate based on their interests and available time, there are opportunities for everyone.
