about me

Greetings and welcome to azaroff.com.

I’m William Azaroff, a modern co-operator, recovering filmmaker, happy Vancouverite and all-around digital fella. I’m a longtime blogger and seasoned speaker focused on the intersection of community investment, engagement marketing and the world of co-ops, an editor of the CU Water Cooler and a proudly elected Board member at Modo, a large car-sharing co-operative in Metro Vancouver.

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.

See my film, CheckMating (read about it here):

obligatory disclaimer stuff

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.

    I am interested in discussing advertising opportunities for your email newsletters. Our company has developed a native ad email solution with over 1,700 advertisers that has been implemented for media companies such as The Daily Caller, Town Hall, and Real Clear Politics. Based on our research, we feel our native ad email solution should work well for you as well.

    The process is very simple and there is no commitment required. I’ll be happy to discuss in more details the revenue potential for your newsletters as well as answer any questions you might have about the process. Please let me know a good time for us to talk further?
