IYC Kick-off Event has MOVED!

Our event location has MOVED to The Big Idea Co-operative Bookstore, 4812 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15224.

Come on out on Friday, November 4th, 6-9pm, to enjoy discussion, networking, refreshments, and special guest speaker Ajowa Ifateyo, co-founder of the U.S. Federation of Worker Co-operatives, for a fun evening centered around how co-operative businesses and non-profits can help to build a local, living economy in Pittsburgh, PA and beyond.  This “Co-op Social” is designed to be a casual and fun networking event, open to individuals from established co-ops, start-up co-ops, and anyone who is interested in learning more about co-ops.

We still plan to have a gala-style event with sponsorship and tables for established Southwestern PA co-ops in late January, 2012 (date TBA).  Please come out on November 4th to find out how you can support a robust International Year of Co-operatives program for 2012 in the Pittsburgh region!

Thanks, and hope to see you next Friday!

About iycpoc

International Year of Co-operatives Pittsburgh Organizing Committee (IYC POC) is a group of individuals from local co-ops committed to uniting cooperatives in the Pittsburgh area in celebration of the United Nations–declared "International Year of Cooperatives" in 2012, and beyond. Our kick-off celebration event will be held in the fall of 2011. In 2012, IYC POC aims to create an informational directory of local co-ops for public reference. Throughout the year, we will advocate the co-op model and raise awareness about worker, consumer, and housing co-ops through informational releases as well as events such as the co-op show-off and how-to workshops.
