Event description

Description

The Vermont Employee Ownership Center is pleased the present the first of what will hopefully be a regular series of "shared trainings" for Vermont worker co-ops, which will be hosted at the Timberhomes Vermont co-op's new workshop!

The event will feature two concurrent sessions that will run from 3:30-5pm:

  • A "Worker Co-op 101" workshop run by Matt Cropp of the VEOC intended to orient new(ish) staff (both employees and new owners) to the worker co-op model. VEOC is working with TESA to develop a new presentation for this topic, so this workshop will be the debut of the new training! This workshop is priced at $25 per participant, but if that is a hardship for your co-op, please reach out.
  • A "Hot Topics Round-Table for Co-op Leaders" facilitated by Lane Fury of the Cooperative Fund of New England. "Leaders" includes managers, board members and experienced worker cooperators. This session is free and the topics of discussion will be largely defined by what challenges, questions, and ideas the participants bring to the table.

Immediately following the sessions, there will be an informal "Co-op Social" for which we'll order pizza, and for which Timberhomes has indicated that it's fine to BYOB. Worker co-op folks who do not attend workshops are still welcome at the social, but we ask that they do register in advance so we have rough numbers and dietary needs for ordering pizza.

The social will overlap with the arrival of members of the Vermont Solidarity Investing Club (a club that invests exclusively in co-ops), which will be meeting in the space starting at 7pm.
