Busy calendar of events for housing co-op members - February 14, 2013

Don't miss the March 1 Scholarship Fund application deadline!

The 2013 CHF BC Scholarship Fund application deadline is March 1, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. The Scholarship Fund's purpose is to support the educational goals of co-op members, particularly young co-op members who are already making a contribution to their communities.

If you live in a CHF BC member housing co-op, plan to enrol, or are already enrolled, in an undergraduate program in a college, university or apprenticeship program, check out the Scholarship Fund application online. But hurry: there are only a couple of weeks left to apply. We will present scholarship awards to the winners at the CHF BC Semi-Annual General Meeting on May 4.

Packed event calendar for spring 2013

Starting with a speed-networking Member Forum in our new Vancouver offices on February 18, and a Vancouver Island Council meeting in Victoria on February 27, we kick off an exciting spring line-up of events for members on the Mainland and the Island. We've listed most of them here, but check our website, mark your calendars and watch for more news coming soon. Please make note of the deadlines. The CHF BC Scholarship Fund application deadline is March 1, and the Yes Camp draw deadline is June 15. Information about registration for our Spring Island Education Day, Spring Education Conference, and Semi-Annual General Meeting will be coming to your co-op in the mail and posted online closer to those event dates.

And don't forget, provincial election day is May 14, 2013. CHF BC wants to let all parties and candidates know how they can support co-ops. We'll be counting on you to get actively involved in the campaign and will be sure to suggest plenty of ways to make your voice and your vote count on May 14.

Stay tuned for more e-newsletters in the coming weeks on this and other important updates and announcements!
