COCo Note

You're Invited to COCo's Annual General Meeting!

You’re Invited to COCo’s Annual General Meeting!

This year, our theme is Visions of the Future. Every year, our AGM is an opportunity for community groups to come together, connect, and reflect. This year, amidst political, social, and environmental turmoil, we want to think about how we can creatively imagine a future that is socially just, and where our sector is supporting Quebec’s marginalized communities. As always, we’ll be doing it with a dose of fun– in this case, in the company of space ships, crystal balls, and alien life. Register Here.

It provides an easily implementable tool to evaluate the strengths and challenges of an organization’s board of directors. It considers a board’s work through a variety of lenses including its makeup, connection to organizational culture and ability to carry out its mandate through specific tasks that are typically part of board roles. Read more.
