The Co-op Compass

Workshop Intro:

The Co-op Compass is a facilitated process that brings your housing co-op membership together to develop a shared mission and vision based on co-op housing values. This grounds decision-making and informs your future planning.

The full process is twelve hours over two to four visits – engage in the full process at the outset or take it one step at a time.
