What is a BarCampBank?
A BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants.
The aim of BarCampBank is to foster innovations and the creation of new business models in the world of banking and finance.
How does a BarCamp Work?
While it seems like complete chaos, BarCamp is actually quite organized. In fact, it is organized in part by YOU! Yes, you may not realize it at the time, but you are critical to the organization of each and every part of BarCamp. So jump in!
See, when each BarCamp starts we have only the vaguest of ideas about what is going to be discussed, presented, performed, or invented. We open it up to the participants (that means you) to decide what will be the content of the conference. If you’ve come to listen to some great ideas and topics beingtossed around then you’ve found the right place. If you have come with an awesome presentation that you want to deliver, great. If you have come with a vague idea of a topic that you think might be interesting and want to suggest that a few like minded folks brainstorm over it, that’s great too!
BarCamp is truly about what you want to hear, see, talk about, and do.
At the beginning of the day we post a grid with a bunch of open squares representing conference rooms and times. People propose talks, panels, and workshops to fill those slots. Then we all vote on which events we want to join.
That’s it! Simple. An entire conference emerging from a very simple set of rules.
There is a $30 fee to help cover the facility and food costs. This is a not-for-profit event.

Nice if you can bring it but we'll also have a list at the door.
Big thanks to @egrigg9000 for sharing some awesome copy from BarCampSeattle.
When & Where
The Cooperative Trust is a grassroots group of young people working in credit unions and cooperatives.

While we can’t predict the future of business, credit unions, or cooperatives, we want to help build it.
