This Thursday at 10am EST/15:00 GMT, we'll be kicking off a weekly(-ish) series of "Member Office Hours" with @mattcropp hosting a conversation on real estate co-ops in this meet.coop room: https://ca.meet.coop/b/mik-cuv-85e
The idea for this series is to create space for members to host conversations on topics of interest to them and the #socialcoop community, so if you have an idea you'd like to host a chat about, please pick a week and add it to the scheduing spreadsheet linked in the announcements!
