CHI Board Meeting & Symposium – Quebec City
Centre des congrès, Québec, Canada
Co-operators from around the world met in October 2014 in Québec City for the International Summit of Co-operatives. Housing co-op delegates were among the thousands networking and hearing fresh ideas from international experts.
The Co-operative Housing International board of directors met at the Summit. CHI President, Nicholas Gazzard, presented an interpretation of the Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade as it applies to housing co-ops. CHI also held a Summit symposium on legal frameworks from a co-operative housing perspective.
Other initiatives discussed at the CHI meeting included an automated tool based on the International Good Governance Test allowing co-op boards to assess their governance performance, and the use of sustainable timber and other forest products for housing co-op construction.
