This workshop is about looking at community engagement principles and practices. We will learn how to authentically engage your members to work together to make your co-ops the best places to live. We will dive into topics such as power, participation, asset mapping, and planning your engagement. Come prepared to talk, share and play as we work through practical tools.

No scents is good sense! CHFT has a no scents policy. Due to allergies, asthma and chemical sensitivities, we ask that no perfume, cologne, or scented products be worn to in-person events.
