COCo’s Frequently Asked Questions
At COCo, we often get questions from community organizations about a vast range of topics, from the legal role of the board of directors or when to have the AGM or how to deal with racism in the workplace. We love to help organisations with these questions! In fact, we get them so often, we have ready-made resources that might be useful. We decided to gather our most FAQs and link our most used information-sheets, blog posts, and other ressources that we share online. We hope it helps!
