As a cooperator would you like to:
Have an opportunity to network with other cooperators?
Have an open dialogue with some cooperative leaders?
Go through case studies and/or specific cooperative issues?
Hearing about current cooperative events?
CMEASC and Saint Mary’s University is pleased to put on our Peer to Peer sessions. These sessions are intended to cover the above in an atmosphere where we can all benefit from our collective cooperative knowledge.
For our inaugural session we are pleased to announce our guest speaker William Azaroff, the Board Chair for Modo Car Coop. This ride share cooperative has established itself in a competitive market where technology plays a huge role. William will be joining us for the first 20 minutes of the call where he will talk about Modo and the barriers they faced in such a tech savvy industry. Next we will have an open discussion around technology challenges of your own cooperative, and more importantly, how you were able to overcome them. From there, Erin from Saint Mary’s will give us an update on upcoming cooperative events or news.
Peer to Peer session details:
January 25th 2018
