Gathering of Alberta Co-operatives 2018

October 17th & 18th, Stony Plain AB

We invite you to save and share the date for the Gathering of Alberta Co-operatives. The fun takes place in Stony Plain, on the 17th of October until mid-day on the 18th. The Gathering of Alberta Co-ops will feature a series of innovative and engaging events built around the following themes:

Knowledge Sharing and Mentoring

The co-operative sector has an abundance of skills, experience, and knowledge. All programming at the Gathering will connect co-operators to learn from one another.

Growing the sector

How much of Alberta’s GDP will be attributed to co-operatives in the next five years? How will membership grow? What new co-operatives will exist? How will co-operatives stay ahead of the changes in our economy? These are the questions that will be addressed at the Gathering!

 Leading the Sector

No organization can outpace the quality of its leadership. We want to explore and discuss the core competencies for co-operatives to attract, retain, and develop excellent leaders

Celebrating Alberta’s Co-operative Leaders

Join in on celebrating Alberta 2018 co-operative leaders when we pass out the 2018 Co-operative Leadership Awards.
