Testimonials

Here's what our members say about their experience with CHF BC workshops, conferences and consultations:

“Pat is knowledgeable, engaged, passionate about the movement and full of practical advice on a huge range of co-op matters.”
Levellers Housing Co-op

“Kerry’s presentation has spurred many fresh ideas and options for us to manage our difficulties and go forward (happily). She is a fantastic facilitator; objective, probing, knowledgeable and challenging. Not to miss out easy to follow and understand.   I never saw one glazed over eye at all!
James Bay Housing Co-op

“The CHF BC workshops are an invaluable tool for new and seasoned board members alike. There is always more to learn and ways to grow and develop as a leader and as a good co-op member. Doreen was an excellent facilitator; she was engaging and made people want to participate.”

Brooksford Place Housing Co-op

“We love having Kerry chair our meetings. In the past we held meetings that seemed to last hours and hours but never really got anywhere. We find that our meetings go much more smoothly when Kerry facilitates and we manage to get through the entire agenda in a reasonable amount of time. Her pleasant, calm, objective presence is a huge benefit to us!”
Pioneer Housing Co-op

“David performed extremely well under challenging conditions. He chaired the meeting effectively and impartially, allowing our membership to resolve the question at hand in as fair a manner as could be wished for. I sincerely believe that David’s handling of the SGM will have an impact on the challenge brought before the Supreme Court of BC by the member being terminated.”
Lore Krill Housing Co-op

“I have been attending workshops for the last twenty years and have never been disappointed. I always come back to my co-op with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and the knowledge I need to help my co-op move forward.”
