2008 National Worker Cooperative Conference
3rd National Conference of Worker Cooperatives
and Democratic Workplaces
June 19-22, 2008
The conference was held on the campus of Loyola University in New Orleans, and was co-sponsored by the Twomey Center for Peace Through Justice at Loyola. It focused on information exchange and skill-sharing, thinking about our place in a larger movement for economic justice, creating connections with each other and other groups, and continuing to build our national Federation.
We had workshops by and for worker cooperators, speakers from around the world, presentations by New Orleanians and those helping to rebuild the city, one-on-one consultation times with co-op development experts, meals together, parties and social events, live music (of course! it's New Orleans!), and plenty of chances to spend time together enjoying the excellent company of other worker cooperative members and supporters.
