The California Center for Cooperative Development provides direct education and networking opportunities to cooperatives and the general public through several annual trainings.
The Western Worker Co-op Conference is organized by CCCD staff on behalf of the Western Worker Cooperative Conference Planning Board. This conference is held every other year; the 2011 conference was September 5-7 at Breitenbush Hot Springs in Oregon. The next Western Worker Co-op Conference will be in 2013. In 2012 a national worker co-op conference was convened by the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives.
CCCD is working with our partners to create new educational events, including a “Grow Your Own Food Co-op” program for California’s underserved communities and a university-level co-op training course for Co-op Camp Sierra. Help make these events a reality by donating to CCCD. We welcome funders to contact us about underwriting any of our events at: email@example.com.
