ACE INSTITUTE TO EXAMINE CO-OP SUSTAINABILITY
North American and Caribbean co-operative researchers and educators are visiting Ottawa in late July and invite you to participate in their conference. The Association of Cooperative Educators (ACE) welcomes members, students and friends to attend its first-ever institute held in Ottawa, which runs July 29-Aug 1. The theme of the conference is The Sustainable Cooperative: Vision. Leadership. Education. As part of the conference, participants will visit area co-operatives and caisses to witness their environmental and social innovations. Other parts of the program will focus on sustaining leadership (Francoise Morissette), valuing what counts (Laurie Mook), strategic planning (Jim Hoyt), and greening co-operative organizations. Simultaneous interpretation in English, French and Spanish is provided during formal presentations. Visit www.ace.coop for registration packages and program information.
