Introduction to Cooperatives workshop
September 19, 2013, 6-8 pm
Hosted by: MataHari: Eye of the Day
1 Milk St., 5th Floor
Boston, MA 02109
This workshop will give an introduction to starting and running a cooperative business. Worker-owned cooperatives are owned and controlled by their members and are a way of providing employment for their members and needed services for the larger community. After this workshop you will understand the difference between worker, consumer, and producer cooperatives, and learn about new hybrid models of co-op businesses. You will have a sense of the history and global reach of cooperative businesses, the logistics of how they operate internally, and the steps needed to get one started.
Co-sponsored by the Worker Owned and Run Cooperative Network (worcn.org) and the Boston Center for Community Ownership (bcco.coop).
