Learning streams

Co-op Futures: What does our future look like? These sessions will help you explore what may be on the horizon for your co-op, from the environment and other sustainability issues to building and preserving units.

Recover, Refresh, Reset Post-Pandemic: How has Covid-19 affected our housing co-ops? These sessions will bring lessons learned from the pandemic into perspective, including new technologies, preparedness and recovery plans, dealing with conflicts and more.
