Symposium on Cooperation: Cooperative as an economic model
August 18 and 19, 2014
The idea of organizing a symposium under the theme of cooperation was instigated by several economic players of the Acadia of the Lands and Forests region. The working committee saw the opportunity to share with the Acadians and their friends the know-how of small, medium sized and large businesses that opted for the cooperative business model. Considering that the Acadia of the Lands and Forests region consists mainly of rural communities, the cooperative business model is the model for the future.
Organized in a festive and friendly atmosphere, this rallying event presented in both French and English, will highlight cooperative models that are in operation in Quebec, New-Brunswick and Maine. Many activities, including discussions and networking via conferences, discussion panels, exhibitor’s hall and visits of the region, will encourage business networking between participants.
This event is for all Acadians involved in a cooperative field, for traditional entrepreneurs as well as for every Acadian curious to know more about the cooperative model and on businesses who opted for that type of management. The tools used to recruit participant will mainly consist of the organizing committee’s contact network and the programming published via the Congrès mondial acadien.
