WHAT ARE CO-OP SERVICE AWARDS?
Every housing co-op has a member or staff person who has given special service to their co-op that is worthy of special recognition. Click here to download the 2016 nomination form.
A Co-op Service Award is recognition for an individual (or group of members) whom their co-op would like to see recognized by the larger housing co-op sector for outstanding or exemplary service or contribution to their housing co-op, the greater co-op movement, or the larger community where the contribution has enhanced the reputation of the co-op movement.

Some examples of “Service”…
The nomination form is submitted by the co-op to COCHF after a motion is made and approved at an official co-op members meeting or Board meeting. The nominee(s) must agree to be nominated and sign the nomination form. Your co-op can make one nomination in a year, and/or up to three people who have worked together as a group on the same activity.
CO-OP SERVICE AWARD DINNER
Date: February 15, 2018
2017 will mark the 12th year that the awards have been presented by COCHF so that housing co-ops in Waterloo Region, Guelph, and Brantford can give recognition to their members and staff who have made a significant contribution to their co-op community or to the greater co-op movement, or made a contribution to the larger community while demonstrating the co-operative principles and values.
Even though the award is presented by COCHF, these individuals have been nominated solely by their own co-ops. The award is an opportunity for a co-op to show its appreciation for their nominee’s valued contribution that has made a difference.
Congratulations from COCHF to all of the nominees / recipients of the Co-op Service Awards.
