Busy line-up of events in May - May 7, 2014

Member Forum previews CHF Canada's AGM

Join other CHF BC and CHF Canada members for a presentation on what to expect at CHF Canada's AGM in Ottawa in June. This year the national federation's AGM will focus on the international Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade and "shaping our future together as a co-operative sector." At our Member Forum, we'll give you a preview and discuss how themes from the Blueprint apply to housing co-ops and what opportunities and challenges lie ahead.

You'll also get an update and news from our You Hold the Key Campaign.

Come and connect for an evening of feedback, food and fun!

Organic waste recycling - what you need to know! 

Did you know that Metro Vancouver will ban all organics from the landfill in 2015?
 
What does this mean for your co-op? Join us at the Organic Waste Workshop on Wednesday, May 28 at the CHF BC Vancouver office to look at the challenges and uncover the opportunities.
 
Learn how to improve recycling of food scraps, yard and garden waste. Remember, by keeping organics out of the waste stream your co-op will avoid fines and penalties.
 
All co-ops that currently use CHF BC’s Waste and Recycling Program with BFI Canada/Progressive Waste Solutions are welcome to attend.
