Please join us for a rare opportunity to speak directly with some of the nation’s leading experts on worker-owned cooperatives, and co-ops of all kinds, in a special YES! Magazine conference call, hosted by YES! co-founder and executive editor Sarah van Gelder.
Cooperatives have a 200-year history of helping people get through hard times. And now they’re on the rise again, partly as a response to the economic meltdown, but also because they’re a way of doing business that respects workers, consumers, and the environment. Here’s your chance to learn more about the growing cooperative movement and how you can get involved.
The conference call format will include both roundtable discussions hosted by Sarah van Gelder and questions and interactions with registered participants.
Aan audio recording will be available following the call.
