…and welcome to azaroff.com.
I’m William Azaroff, a modern co-operator, recovering filmmaker, happy Vancouverite and all-around digital fella.
I’m the proudly elected Board Chair of Modo, a car-sharing co-operative in Metro Vancouver and Victoria, critical to the urban transportation landscape. A founding editor of both the CU Water Cooler and Co-op Water Cooler, I’m a longtime blogger and a seasoned speaker focused on the intersection of community investment, engagement marketing and the world of co-ops.
I work at Vancity, a values-based financial co-operative serving the needs of its half million member-owners and their communities. As the Director of Business & Community Development I lead a team that delivers on our Good Money™ brand by developing opportunities with progressive businesses, not-for-profits, social enterprises and co-operatives working towards a more vibrant, sustainable, inclusive local economy.

I should add that the opinions I express on this site are (mostly) my own and are not endorsed by Vancity or Modo. There, it feels good to get that off my chest.
