Event Details

 Join us for the 10th Anniversary National Worker Cooperative Conference, May 30th - June 1st in the Windy City of Chicago. As worker ownership breaks into the public consciousness on an unprecedented scale, we will gather in popular education and brainstorm sessions, keynotes, and much more to:

1)     share best practices,

2)     identify (and shape) emerging trends,

3)     form relationships with allied organizations, businesses, and economic developers,

4)     have a blast building a liberatory economy! 

Be a part of building a new economy based on shared ownership and real democracy. See you in Chicago.

400+ inspired participants. Dozens – even hundreds – of worker cooperatives in all stages, from concept, to conversion, to growth. The U.S.'s leading lenders, funders, educators, and businesses supporting the cooperative economy. International guests bringing their critical eyes and perspectives. And your organization, front and center as a supporter of worker ownership just as it is breaks into the public consciousness on an unprecedented scale.
