It’s co-op week!
This week is co-op week, and it’s a great opportunity to get together and celebrate the diversity and potential of co-ops and credit unions across British Columbia. There are plenty of events happening throughout the week that you can take part in to learn more about the sector—and have fun at the same time!
There are a number of events planned by the BC Co-op Association.
On Thursday, you can stop by the CCEC Credit Union on 2248 Commercial Drive from 10 am to 12 pm where they’ll be flipping flapjacks in honour of International Credit Union Day.
Also on Thursday, the co-op association will be hosting a special evening co-op cafe as part of the Co-op Week celebrations. Come to Red Truck Brewery from 5:30-8:30 pm for a beer while connecting with local co-operators and getting your burning co-op questions/ideas discussed.
These events are a great opportunity to connect with co-operators in a series of fun, casual settings, while also supporting your local co-op and credit union sector. Be sure to check out what other Co-op Week events are happening in your area!
