‘Co-op Futures’ Virtual Annual Meeting – On Demand National July 08, 2021 to December 31, 2021 Register

Available July 8 – December 31, 2021

The advantage of holding our annual meeting virtually this year is that we now have recordings of all the workshops and plenaries. This is a great opportunity for more co-op members to take part in high quality co-operative education and important discussions.

If you missed the Virtual Annual Meeting, we are offering access at the affordable price of $50 per person (not the same as attending live, but a great second-best option)

“I think it’s such a good idea to open up the AGM proceedings to other co-op members…A really good deal! The plenary/workshops/business meetings were so good they should be shared with more members.” – John Sharkey, Bain Co-op.

These recordings will be available until December 31, 2021 allowing you to watch it at your own pace and convenience.

Check out the Member Education Forum (MEF) workshops here, and Co-op Managers’ Conference (CMC) workshops here.

$50 per person
