…and welcome to azaroff.com.
I’m an executive at Vancity, a values-based financial co-operative serving the needs of its half-million member-owners and their communities. Having served the organization in a number of different leadership and executive roles over the last dozen years, I am currently the Vice President of Community Business & Investment, leading the area that supports Vancity’s business members via daily banking, lending facilities, cash management services, and innovative community investment vehicles to support local businesses, organizations and co-operatives that are seeking to grow sustainably.
I am the Board Chair of the Vancity Community Foundation and was elected to the board of Modo, a car-sharing co-operative offering 600 cars, trucks, vans, hybrids and EVs to a growing membership of 20,000 in Metro Vancouver, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan.
Currently, I am writing a book on leadership lessons gained from my dozen years as a filmmaker. I’m a (very) longtime blogger, seasoned speaker and dialogue facilitator focused on the intersection of community investment, organizational strategy and leadership. I’m a founding editor of the Credit Union Water Cooler website and annual Symposium.
