International Year of Co‐operatives National Conference 2012

The United Nations International Year of Co‐operatives will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for Australian cooperative businesses to come together under the banner of the International Year to celebrate and share their success. This is your time to shine!

The International Year of Co‐operatives National Conference 2012 will raise awareness about the important role of cooperatives and mutuals in many industry sectors of the Australian economy. The importance to industry, the business community and government is about how our businesses help Australia meet some of its most pressing social and economic priorities such as skilling Australia, increasing productivity, supporting Regional Australia, creating sustainable enterprise and helping social inclusion.

“Cooperatives are a reminder to the international community that it is possible to pursue both economic viability and social responsibility.”
United Nations Secretary‐General, Ban Ki‐moon

Two conferences, three days, one place

Regional Development Australia – Mid North Coast in collaboration with the International Year of Co‐operatives 2012 Steering Committee are delighted to come together to give the co‐operative industry the most significant event on the 2012 calendar. The collaboration brings together National, State and Regional co‐operative roles in society, combining economic viability and social responsibility. The conferences will provide a platform to discuss the value and future direction of co‐operatives.
