The Network will be exhibiting at Congress and showcasing how Co-operative Councils from across the UK are driving municipal policy using the Co-operative Values and Principles.
Congress is the co-operative sector’s annual conference. A day when members and directors, activists and CEOs from co-operatives large and small come together.
Combining great speakers, pitches from collaborative entrepreneurs, practical workshops and advice surgeries, Congress is an opportunity for all those working to build a fairer economy to come together to share ideas, get inspiration and take action.
Once again the Network is sponsoring the Co-operative of the Year Awards, Councillor Sharon Taylor, Chair of the Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network and Leader of Stevenage Borough Council, said:
The Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network is delighted to sponsor the Co-operative of the Year Awards for the second time. The Network comprises 22 councils from across the country who are committed to finding better ways of working for, and with, local people for the benefit of their local community. The Co-operative of the Year Awards highlight what can be achieved when people work together to build a better world, and it is a privilege for the CCIN to sponsor these Awards showcasing the crème de la crème and diversity of the UK’s co-operative sector.
Councillor Taylor will be chairing a Panel at the Co-operative Congress.
