We’re going to Co-op Congress

The biggest event of the UK Co-operatives Year is back, in person. And we’re going to be there. Are you?

After two years away, we are so pleased that Congress will be happening in person (with an online element) on Friday the 17th and Saturday the 18th June in Birmingham, with a networking dinner on the evening between the two days.

The programme is packed with workshops, discussions, advice and keynotes. Alongside traditional support sessions, advice for those new to the movement, and exploration of the democratic economy, some sessions have jumped out at us.

On Friday, Joining the dots: How can tech enable a stronger co-operative economy? will explore the part tech could play a huge role in transforming and strengthening the co-operative movement.

Later that day, a panel will discuss the role of co-ops in creative industries and how co-operatives can address unfairness in the music industry

On Saturday, two sessions will explore Community Shares, and Women’s voice through co-operative history. And there is much, much more besides.

We’ll be there as an exhibitor – come along and say hi to Business Development Manager Tim and Lending and Relationship Manager Kevin, and ask any questions you may have about your finance needs. We look forward to meeting you!
