Member Selection / Interviewing Techniques

Date: Saturday, April 13, 2024
Time: 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Virtual via Zoom

 

We all know attracting good members to our co-ops is a challenge and affects how our co-ops can thrive. How can your Board and Membership Committee determine that an applicant will make a good member; and what criteria can they base their member selection decisions on? In addition to meeting basic criteria like financial stability, applicants need to be interviewed – which is a challenge in itself.

During this 2.5 hour workshop, we’ll talk about marketing your empty units, the application and interview process, and how to retain your members.

COST

Members: $65 per member (max $300.00 per co-op)
Non-Members: $130 per person

 

Minimum 3 registrants are required to hold this workshop.
