Celebrating the International Year of Co-operatives?
Help is here...
The United Nations is launching the much anticipated International Year of Co-operatives in New York City today. Canada's co-operatives will be making the most of this historic year. How will you and your co-op mark the occasion? This issue of International Dispatch brings you three ways to fast track your preparations for the coming celebration.
Order copies of Celebrating the International Year of Co-operatives, CCA's brand new fcolour calendar featuring photographs from CCA's international development work and inspiring quotes from such well-known figures as Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Agnes MacPhail and co-winner of this year's Pulitzer Peace Prize Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. It's beautiful and it's free (order while supplies last).
