A record-breaking 162 members filled 282 workshop spots at our Spring Education Conference on April 1, held at CHF BC’s bright and light-filled new event venue, the Westin Wall Centre, Vancouver Airport. The conference kicked off with our six most popular workshops and in the afternoon a plenary session and workshops led an exploration of how co-ops — and co-op members — are “doing things differently” in the areas of governance, accounting, renovation, development and re-development.
Here’s just some of what attendees had to say about the conference:”This has been the BEST conference I have attended. Both workshops were engaging to the end!!”
“As a new co-op member, I have been enjoying new material and skills to contribute to my co-op. Very encouraging to meet new people and share different stories, struggles and trying to support our community.” “What a collegial way to find yourself in a true community of interest.” “Best venue you have had.”
If you enjoyed the conference or can’t wait to see what all the rave reviews are about, join us at the same venue for our semi-annual members’ meeting on May 7.
