Chicago’s 1st Cooperative Economy Summit

August 25, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0

The Chicago Cooperative Economy Summit will host panels of the co-op economy’s leaders and pioneers, provide breakout discussion zones to delve deeper, offer tabling space for cooperative organizations to promote awareness and enroll people in their programs, and publish the first directory of Chicago’s 250+ brick and mortar sites in the cooperative economy, ranging in goods and services from housing co-ops to credit unions, food co-ops to bike shops, community aid groups to printing presses, community gardens to health care co-ops, insurance pools to babysitting co-ops, video production studios to financial planning co-ops, and much, much more.

By pooling our collective resources and experiences, we can build the base and accelerate the growth of Chicago’s cooperative organizations as members and aspiring members evaluate and collaborate on the Chicago cooperative economy’s next steps and integration with our lives.

Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-chicago-cooperative-economy-summit-tickets-47702772276 to help us prepare for occupancy codes with a correct attendance and then join us at 237 S Desplaines from 10a to 5p to see how you can enjoy and benefit from more cooperation in your life.
