Session 1 Coming April 10-13th, 2017!
The Art and Science of Cooperative Development: Session 1 will be offered in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin from April 10-13th, 2017. As a city that boasts the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives and is home to dozens of housing, consumer, and worker co-ops, Madison offers the perfect backdrop for a cooperative development training. We’ll explore cooperative development in a city that thrives on it and draw inspiration from the training’s co-op tour!
