Co-op Staff & Managers Sharing Circle National April 13, 2023 RegisterBrochure

1:15 – 2:30pm EASTERN TIME 

Topic: Diversity and inclusion in co-op housing

Co-op managers & staff are invited to participate in CHF Canada’s monthly Sharing Circles! A virtual discussion series with your colleagues, as well as subject matter experts and CHF Canada staff. Since January, 2021 CHF Canada has hosted monthly Sharing Circle events to provide an opportunity for co-op managers and staff to connect with their peers, learn, discuss, and exchange knowledge.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from sector experts on topics relevant to co-op staff and management, to discuss their learnings and exchange ideas in an open discussion forum, as well as in smaller breakout groups. Key learnings from these discussions will be captured and available to participants after the event.


Member-Managed Co-ops – Round Table National April 22, 2023 Register

1:00-2:00pm EST

Registration in advance is required

We would like to invite you to participate in a virtual event for board members and general members of self-managed co-ops. Self-managed or member-managed co-ops are those housing co-ops that do not contract with a management company or employ a staff person to provide management services.

In response to the resolution adopted at the CHF Canada AGM in 2021, we are happy to offer an opportunity to connect with member-managed co-ops and provide an opportunity to exchange with other housing co-ops like yours.

The Co-operative Principles are a set of special ethical values that apply to co-operatives in both their governance and management tasks.  Join us to discuss what member managed co-ops can do to ensure they are following these important guidelines, and talk to other member managed co-ops about what they do to practice them in their everyday.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

If you have any questions, contact René Daoust rdaoust@chfcanada.coop
