Interviewing and member selection

We all know that the best way to attract good members to our co-ops is to offer great housing in a thriving co-op community. But how does a membership committee determine that an applicant will make a good member? And what is a good member anyway?

In addition to meeting basic criteria like financial stability, you need to interview applicants. This practical workshop will introduce you to "behavioural-based interviewing" for housing co-ops. Using the logic that how someone behaved in the past predicts how they behave in the future as a member of your co-op, behavioural interviewing is a new way to help screen applicants.  It will challenge your thinking about interviewing.

You will create a set of behavioural-based interviewing questions and have fun preparing for interviews.
