CHF BC Essentials - September 4, 2012

Welcome back!

September's here and we're getting ready for a busy and exciting fall. To kick it off, we invite you to join us on Monday, September 10 at 7pm for a welcome-back Member Forum. We'll have a special guest speaker from the Vancouver Tool Library who will tell us how this tool-sharing co-op works.  You can see if membership in the Tool Library might be useful for your housing co-op.  Later in the month, join us to learn how CHF BC's 2020 Compass program can help your co-op get ready for the future at a free 2020 Compass Information session on Monday, September 24.

And there's more activity to come with our Fall Education Conference on October 20 in Burnaby and our Fall Island Education Day on November 3 in Victoria. There will be more Member Forums in October and November too — and don't forget to mark your calendars for the CHF BC Annual General Meeting on December 1.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
