Argyle Park Housing Cooperative, 320 Sangster Blvd, Regina, SK 306-949-9616
Morning networking 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Start the day with your fellow co-operators. The focus of this session is to provide a forum for you to exchange ideas with co-op members and directors from other housing co-ops across the province. We have heard that participants learn from each other and we know that this type of peer-to-peer exchange is valuable. No matter where you are in the province, you will find some common experiences governing, managing and living in a housing co-op.
Morning workshop 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Your Board’s Roadmap: Setting roles and directioN
Jackie Hunt is a training consultant, community leader and Volunteer Manitoba's Executive Director. She has over 20 years of experience in adult education, providing training for individuals and organizations on leadership, communication, emotional intelligence and goal setting. She has also delivered training on board governance and non--profit organizational development. She is an experienced public speaker and has delivered keynotes and plenary sessions at conferences.
We all want to make a lasting difference in our community and leave a
positive impact. It is easy for boards to get caught up in
the weeds of the day to day decisions that face our housing coops. Let’s
learn how to make a plan to determine what your board wants to accomplish
and whose job it is to get the work done.
In this workshop you will:
•Discuss how to determine the roles and responsibilities of the members of your board and what the expectations for directors are
•Learn about how to develop a strategic plan with clear short and long term objectives
•Find strategies to keep your board focused on moving the strategic plan forward
NETWORKING LUNCH 12:00 pm –1:30 pm
Over lunch CHF Canada Board Director for the Prairie Region, Coral Hetherington, will give a regional report. We’ll have an opportunity to discuss important issues in Saskatchewan.
Afternoon workshop 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
TO THE NEAR FUTURE AND BEYOND: YOUR CO-OP'S LONG-TERM PLANNING INTO ACTION
Ofelia Guanlao is the Senior Program Manager of Asset Management Services for CHF Canada.
How do you ensure your co-op has sufficient funds to cover repairs? How do you know which projects to prioritize? Does your co-op have a long-term financial plan? If capital repairs are making you lose sleep and your co-op doesn't have a long-term financial plan, join CHF Canada staff in this workshop. Long-term financial planning allows members to look at the bigger picture and what strategies are needed to make your co-op sustainable and thriving in the future. This session will help you address questions on what capital repairs to implement, how to manage your members' current and future needs, how to improve your co-op buildings, and to pay for them. It's not too late to start one now and prepare your co-op for the near future and beyond. Good planning and implementation now will prepare your co-op for a bright future.
