Co-ops NSW Conference 2018
June 22, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm$132
Co-ops NSW is proud to present its 2018 Conference to be held on Friday 22 June 2018 – Hosted by the UTS Centre for Business and Social Innovation (UTS/CBSI).
Co-operative Sectors – Co-ops NSW Conference 2018
Co-ops NSW has designed the 2018 Conference to build the capacity of co-operatives in NSW and stimulate co-operative learning and innovation.
Co-operatives originated in periods of market scarcity and disruption – what’s old is new again. The 2018 Co-ops NSW Conference has drawn together a national and international selection of speakers to discuss the challenge of co-operatives in the new economy. The ingredients are nurtured, served and packed with values … co-operatives are stirred by a vibrant community of members fresh for tomorrow’s challenges.
2018 Conference focus
Co-operative principles are applied internationally to multiple segments that make up the co-operative movement. Co-operatives for producers, consumers, as buying groups, in housing, services, the financial sector and many more are just some of the broad spectrum of co-operative activity. Feedback from Co-ops NSW members has said it is time to look at the capacity, synergy and cross benefits of the collaborative businesses of our co-operative sectors … the Co-ops NSW Conference 2018 focus is “Co-operative Sectors”.
Co-operatives are sometime perceived as old fashioned but what is old is new again. The cake is a metaphor recognising the importance of traditional values while acknowledging contemporary challenges. The image sliced invitingly into segments demands attention. Co-operatives offer quality ingredients, nurtured, blended and packed with values freshly baked with vibrancy for today and tomorrow!
