Yes, I'd be interested.  We have a growing "community" of CBOs here, and OCBC is trying foster some collaboration. Here is our formal support for other groups, mostly intended for non-CBO partners (like the local men's shelter). I hope to get feedback on how this looks to others, and how we should adapt it for CBO's.

Hello Think Tank!

On behalf of the AMS Bike Co-op / Bike Kitchen in Vancouver I’m wondering if anyone planning on attending Bike!Bike! this year has interest in co-facilitating a workshop on coalition building. This workshop may be of interest to folks from cities or regions with multiple community bike shops looking to form coalitions (or already have) to help manage resources between shops.

We will be showing off our shiny new Vancouver Community Bike Shop Network and brainstorming ways to create similar groups where needed and appropriate, and troubleshooting some of the finer details.

Please e-mail me if you are interested in co-facilitating and if it’s a good fit we can make this workshop even more sweet!

Looking forward to seeing y'all at Bike!Bike!
