At each conference the Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy recognizes two individuals for their outstanding contribution to the Worker Cooperative Movement in the Eastern and Southern United States. We invite you to submit a nomination in the category of Worker Cooperative Worker Owner or Worker Cooperative Developer or Educator. Nominees may be any state in the Eastern or So
Founded in 1999, our bi-annual conference is one of the best places in the United States for individuals, non-profits, and economic developers to learn about the role that worker cooperatives can play in building a new, just, sustainable economy and how to make it happen. Participants learn a huge variety of critical skills for successful cooperatives: from the nuts and bolts of starting and growing a worker cooperative to learning how to incorporate cooperatives into social and economic justice organizing work.
We are currently planning for five tracks.
