Co-operatives WA News


This message has been issued by Co-operatives WA as part of its Member Services and Business Awareness programs.









The Co-operatives WA Annual Conference will be held on Thursday 10th September 2009 at Technology Park Bentley.


The Hon Troy Buswell MLA, Treasurer and Minister for Commerce, has agreed to open the Conference, by which time the Co-operatives Bill 2009 tabled in the Legislative Assembly on 18 March 2009 will hopefully be passed by both Houses of State Parliament.


There is increasing interest in the co-operative business model and how best to go about financing and building a viable and sustainable member owned business entity.  As such arrangements are at an advanced stage to have a USA based international expert on co-operative businesses deliver the Conference key note address and interact with delegates on a range of related topics.


Conference Brochures and Registration Forms will be mailed later in the year.


To ensure you are on the distribution list, email your address details to info@cooperativeswa.org.au
