Register now for the Spring Education Conference

Registration is now open for our Spring Education Conference on Saturday, April 1.

With 34 housing co-ops and a total of 2,400 units in B.C. due to exit their operating agreements in 2017, our conference theme is “Scaling the Peak.” We'll start the day with a line-up of our six most popular workshops including Turning Point, a workshop that takes a look at what is critical to the future of co-ops after the end of government operating agreements. These popular workshops fill up quickly, so register early to avoid disappointment.

Our conference plenary will launch an afternoon of exploration with a choice of six workshops that build on a theme of “doing things differently” including Creative Governance a workshop that will challenge the most common governance myths and generate a takeaway list of creative governance ideas you might try.

And we'll be doing things differently too: this will be the first time we hold a conference in our beautiful new venue at the Westin Wall Centre, Vancouver Airport in Richmond.
