CHF BC member co-ops can learn about ARC through this website and by getting in touch with our ARC Program Coordinator, Shivani. She’ll explain the entire process and options, and can schedule an initial meeting with your Board of Directors to get a better sense of your priorities and preferences. Together, we can determine how the ARC program might work for your co-op.
If the Board gives the green light, we’ll proceed with a contract that sets up two stages of work: (1) an initial “Community Check-In” and (b) the “Core ARC Programming“. The ARC team will set up a webpage for your community and we’ll send out login information to each member. You’ll get members-only access to conversations, surveys and photos related to your co-op and its progress on ARC.
The Community Check-In includes a survey element to assess member concerns, interests and readiness for ARC. With that complete, the Board and ARC team will briefly discuss results before committing to move to the second stage, the Core ARC Programming.
The boxes below give a sense of the elements of the Core ARC Programming.
