International Year of Cooperatives Pittsburgh/SWPA Kick-Off Party – November 4, 2011 at the Power Center Ballroom, Duquesne University!

We are pleased to officially announce that our celebration event to kick off 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives is becoming a reality!

Our event will be held on Friday, November 4 from 6-9pm at the Power Center Ballroom at Duquesne University!


This event will be a celebratory gathering of the Southwestern PA region’s co-operatives and their supporters, to meet and greet, network, and chat.  There will be a special guest speaker (TBA) and food, fun raffles, and great conversations!  Attendees will range from organizers of long-standing co-operatives to folks interested in starting up co-operatives, to folks from around Pittsburgh who are generally interested in supporting a co-operative economy at the local level.  Attendance is $5-$10 sliding scale.  All are welcome!

This event is happening thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and volunteers.  Please visit our “Our Partners” link above to view a list of our current sponsors.

We have only a few weeks left to organize this event!  We still need sponsors, volunteers, and co-operatives to donate raffle items for the event.  Please contact us at (724) 318-5348 or if you can assist.

We will provide more information soon about how your cooperative can RSVP for a table at the event… stay tuned!  Meanwhile, please share this flyer with your community!

Thank you for your interest!  We look forward to seeing you at this special event.
