In conjunction with the International Summit of Cooperatives (www.sommetinter.coop/cms/en_CA/home.html) 2014, the Canadian Worker Cooperative Federation (CWCF) and Quebec Worker Cooperative Network (Réseau) are hosting a gathering for worker cooperators from around the world on Worker Cooperative Best Practices. This will take place in the afternoon of October 6th, just prior to the Summit Opening Ceremony.
Various successful worker cooperative strategies will be discussed, for example governance, approaches to better integrate new members, inter-cooperative business partnerships, and business succession to worker cooperatives. If you would like to propose presenting a best practice, please write to CWCF Executive Director Hazel Corcoran, firstname.lastname@example.org, by September 6th, 2014, or as soon as possible.
”Worker cooperatives and multi-stakeholder cooperatives from North America, Latin America, Europe and possibly beyond are expected. This is a unique opportunity allowing cooperators from different parts of the world to meet and exchange ideas”, said Hazel Corcoran.
