Annual Meeting Panel Sessions offer great educational value

Published May 12, 2022

When you attend a panel session at CHF Canada’s Annual Meeting, you get a real bang for your buck: several experts in one room sharing their knowledge and experience with you!

This year, we have two special panel sessions offered as joint workshops in both the Co-op Management Conference (CMC) and the Member Education Forum (MEF).

Either of these could help determine your co-op’s future!

  1. Funding showcase panel (P25/B06)

Discover the different kinds of funding opportunities out there. Our panelists have sifted through all the information for you. “We each have different areas of expertise,” says Dave Howard of CHF Canada’s Financial Planning Services. “We’re very motivated to help co-ops take advantage of the available funding.”

No matter the size of your co-op, the age of your buildings, there is funding just waiting for your co-op to apply!
