Chapter Outreach Support Services
Chapter Outreach Support Services acts as a liaison with chapters enabling two-way dialogue to strengthen the Association. COSS is available to offer help to any chapter in need of assistance. Five Co-ordinators maintain communication with chapter leaders so that problems can be averted or resolved. COSS personnel have received training to deal with common chapter concerns. They are skilled in offering practical recommendations or solutions to issues such as: fundraising; governance; community involvement; advocacy; liaison with related agencies; communication; publicity, etc.. If requested to do so, COSS personnel will conduct Visitor Training seminars following Ostomy Canada Society guidelines to certify suitable visitor candidates.
