June Co-op Conferences

June is a very exciting month for co-ops and Philadelphia! If you're not attending the conferences, consider volunteering! Meet amazing new people, learn some things about what's going on all over the country, and enjoy a free lunch!

Wednesday, June 13th - Conference hosted by the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance and Drexel University, featuring case studies of KCFC, South Philly Food Co-op, Weavers Way, Mariposa, and all sorts of other types of co-ops too. "Exploring Cooperatives: Economic Democracy and Community Development in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin" It's free, with a lunch included too. More details here
 
 
June 14th-16th - Consumer Cooperative Management Association (CCMA) Conference - Philly is hosting this year's annual food co-op conference. 400+ food cooperators from around the country will be in our city for this amazing conference. Get the details on workshop info. Contact outreach@weaversway.coop to volunteer.
(Please include your contact phone number, and indicate the day(s) you are available to volunteer. If you are not available to work the entire day, please indicate workshop times you are available. They cannot guarantee assignments to particular tracks. Tracks will first be filled with volunteers who can work the entire day. Volunteers who work all workshops each day, will receive a complimentary lunch voucher.  Volunteers need to be at the conference 1/2 hour prior to their assigned workshop.)
 
June 16th - CCMA party at Reading Terminal- Every Saturday night during the CCMA conference there is a big party, which is always super fun. It's usually just for conference attendees, but Weavers Way is opening it up to anyone in Philadelphia who wants to attend, and subsidizing the cost. $35 if you sign-up here before June 1st, otherwise it'll be $65 at the door. 
If you attend any of these events, please send any photographs you take to KCFCmedia@gmail.com, along with anything you'd like to share about your experience, so we can share it here for everyone to enjoy!
