It's election time! Nominate your candidates by November 14! - November 9, 2016

It's election time...nominations close Monday, Nov 14!

Is this the year you decide it’s time to serve on the CHF BC board or finance committee? Now's your chance. But hurry: there's less than a week left. Candidate declaration forms must be received in the CHF BC office by Monday, November 14 at 4:30 p.m.

Delegates at this year’s AGM will elect six at-large directors – five for two-year terms and one for a one-year term – and one Finance Committee member for a two-year term. You can learn about the candidates nominated so far on our AGM election page.

This is going to be an AGM unlike any other in CHF BC's history. Here's just some of what will make it special:

  • a new date: Sunday, November 20
  • a new location: the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond
  • a new start time: lunch at 11:30 a.m. featuring awards, prizes and a keynote speaker
  • a new future: be part of our member forum on the future of the co-op housing movement
  • a new wrinkle: CHF BC’s Community Mixer from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • a new event: a welcome reception to Housing Central - CHF BC's Affordable Housing Conference at 5:30 p.m.

We mailed a registration package to your co-op.  You can also find it online.

Please join us on November 20!

Members inspired at education events!

On October 22, CHF BC members came together for another inspiring education conference. There was great feedback from participants new, returning and from around the province.

"My first time!! I have been a co-op member for 30 years but still learned a lot today!"

"These education conferences are essential to the well-being and success of the co-operative housing movement"

On November 5, Vancouver Island members enjoyed their first day with four workshop options at an Island Education Day held in a new venue.

"Great day of productive materials on timely subjects: a day well spent."

If you missed these opportunities, come to our education conference in the spring. We would love to see you! And if you'd like some co-op education sooner, there are still two more scheduled workshops this year, including a webinar on November 17.

If you did attend, make sure you’ve looked at our workshop materials page (you were given a password in your conference package) as well as the plenary page where you can see what our attending members said about "actions and decisions that contribute to strong governance."

Thanks for coming and we look forward to seeing you next time!
