In response to questions from members we have developed resources that offer the latest guidance to help co-ops.
Here is some information about co-op meetings during the social isolation requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can poll the members by email to find out how they feel about the proposed increase, but that’s not enough to make a binding decision. In some co-ops the board sets the housing charges. In others, new housing charges must be approved by ordinary resolution at a members’ meeting called for that purpose. An email poll is not a meeting, so you’ll need to consider other options.
For more information on meetings, see CHF BC’s advice on meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
