2017 California Co-op Conference

On April 28 & 29 in San Francisco is the 2017 California Co-op Conference!

It celebrates cooperatives by sharing successes and providing you with the most effective ways you can help strengthen your cooperative and expand the cooperative movement.

Featuring Keynote Speaker Dr. Carol Zippert
Growing up & Standing up in the South: 50 years of Cooperative Organizing

Dr. Zippert will tell her story of growing up in the segregated American South, and how the African-American community she was part of moved from cooperation to cooperatives. She will share examples of community empowerment through cooperative solutions, as well as reflections of lessons learned for future generations to further social progress and equality.

Other workshops will reveal how cooperatives revitalize and fortify local economies by creating jobs, housing, and locally owned businesses.  You will learn how to start a new cooperative, how to develop and how to strengthen your own cooperatives.  The conference offers you an opportunity to engage with other cooperators and discuss ideas, experiences, and strategies.

Registration is still open, and scholarship opportunities remain for a limited time. Please register soon, and we look forward to seeing you there! Visit http://cccd.coop/events/2017-california-co-op-conference for additional information.
