CHF BC Annual General Meeting & Education Sessions 

Join us on Sunday, November 18 for a day of learning and connecting with others in the community housing sector at the 2018 Housing Central Conference!

The AGM day is structured so that co-op delegates who can only attend on the day of the annual general meeting can participate in the full conference experience.  We look forward to welcoming you for the breakfast and lunch plenaries, education breakout sessions, the AGM and the evening Sector Supper with live entertainment at the new location, the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre in downtown Vancouver.


Many of the education sessions on the morning of November 18 reflect the similar challenges faced by both co-op and non-profit housing providers.  Co-op delegates can choose from sessions along three major education streams in leadership, operations and asset management to add value to their AGM experience and learn best practices in the community housing sector.

The AGM features discussions on the board report, election of directors, the auditor’s report and appointment of the auditor.

Please note that an official notice of the AGM will be sent to CHF BC members.
