Sign Up Today for the ADWC Pre-conference to the ECWD!

The Advancing the Development of Worker Co-ops (ADWC) Workshop is on July 26

Grassroots Economic Organizing (GEO), The Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy and Mariposa Food Co-op are pleased to announce the Advancing the Development of Worker Cooperatives (ADWC) 2013 pre-conference, which will focus on successful inter-cooperative approaches to self-financing and financing within the co-op movement.
The purpose is to focus on positive efforts, explore how can we bring these strategies to scale, increase awareness of these successes, and facilitate adoption and employment of them by other cooperatives. We will examine what the movement is doing to promote worker cooperatives and help worker co-ops thrive financially. The preconference will include presentations of a variety of strategies followed by break-out discussions and report backs. We especially encourage participants who are worker-owners and those engaged in worker co-op financing and development.
Register at $50 if attending the ECWD, and $85 for the pre-conference only (includes meals).
