CHF BC turns 35: come celebrate with us at our AGM!

At our Annual General Meeting on November 19, we'll celebrate CHF BC’s 35th anniversary with a special visit from Domanique Grant, co-op housing leader, singer and performing artist.

We hope you can join us. And there are some other ways you can be part of the celebration too:

  • Between now and November 16, wish us happy birthday @chfbc on Instagram with your co-op name and #strongercommunities; add photos and/or 4 second videos of your co-op and members, or even images from 35 years ago. We'll display the best of these at the AGM. 
  • Plus first prize will get a two-for-one registration to the meeting.
  • And, if you were born in 1982 your registration is free (your co-op must also register another member)!

We'll also join a bigger celebration in the evening after our AGM at the Sector Supper where we'll join with other CHF BC members and our partners in the community housing sector. Several of these housing organizations will be celebrating their own milestone anniversaries: BC Housing, 50 years, BC Non-Profit Housing Association (BCNPHA), 25 years, and the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA), 15 years. The event will be co-hosted by the presidents of CHF BC and the BCNPHA. The cost is $50 or a discounted rate if you're attending our AGM; just select the "Sector Supper" option when you register.

Of course you will still enjoy the usual business of the AGM:

Nominate a director or submit a resolution

Elect a new board (see how you can run or nominate someone to run). Deadline for nominations is November 10 at 4:30 p.m.

We're accepting resolutions from members for consideration at the AGM until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 6.

Register now to be part of the fun!
