CHF BC Annual General Meeting & Education Sessions 

Join us on Sunday, November 17 for a day of learning and connecting with others in the community housing sector at the 2019 Housing Central Conference!

The AGM day is structured so that delegates can participate in the Housing Central Conference while connecting and learning with co-op members and friends. We look forward to welcoming you for the breakfast and lunch plenaries, education breakout sessions, the AGM and the evening Sector Supper at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre in downtown Vancouver.

Building on the feedback from the last AGM, this year's selection of education sessions includes one session exclusively for co-op members in addition to sessions over a cross-section of issues relevant to both co-ops and non-profits.

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.
