The federation offers consulting assistance – contact our office if there’s something you or your co-op requires that is not listed below.
PLANNING FOR CO-OP BOARDS
COCHF will provide a facilitator for a Board Planning session and can provide assistance to develop a strategic plan and/or annual planning calendar.
COCHF can provide a facilitator to conduct community development sessions for the co-op’s membership. Community Development is a process that engages co-op members to talk about and decide what they want to see happen in their co-op community. Contact the COCHF office and it will assist you in the setting up of a program.
