During the week of 1-5 November 2013, you are invited to attend the ICA’s global conference and General Assembly in Cape Town, South Africa. This will be the first time in ICA’s 118 year history that it will be held in Africa. The theme of the conference is Co-operative Decade: Growing the Co-operative Movement. The programme will be built around the Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade, which aims to take co-operatives to a position of being the preferred model and as a result the fastest-growing form of enterprise by 2020. The Blueprint is available here.
