Join us on Thursday, October 11 and Friday, October 12, 2018 at the Courtyard by
Marriott, Downtown Toronto, for our first ever Governance Forum for non-financial co-operatives!
This year's Forum will focus on board directors leading large co-operatives in Ontario, with the objective of helping those with little to no experience in their role, and elevating them to a level where they are capable of having input in the strategic direction and decision-making of a multi-million dollar (non-financial) co-operative organization.
This initiative is inspired by the highly successful Directors' Forum, which provides professional development, education and networking opportunities for Ontario's credit union and caisses populaires board directors. If successful, we aspire to host this event annually and include non-financial co-operatives of all sizes.
Delegates will participate in workshops and sessions all day on Thursday, October 11th, and will be invited to join the delegates of the Directors' Forum for a networking cocktail reception that evening. There will also be one joint session for the delegates of both the Governance Forum and the Directors' Forum on the Friday morning, where co-operative and credit union directors can share their common issues and challenges, and develop opportunities to collaborate and overcome them.
Registration will open online on May 1st. A block of rooms have been set aside for our delegates at the group rate of $189 + HST/night (standard room), which will be available on a first come/first serve basis.
Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
