September 2014 - November 2015
The Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy (ECWD; east.usworker.coop) is an educational organization dedicated to promoting worker cooperatives and the cooperative economy. We aim to make the skills, information and networks necessary to run a successful cooperative business available as widely as possible through educational events such as our bi-annual conference. Founded in 1999, the 2014 conference will be our eighth conference.
We are seeking an individual or team of two to organize and implement the 2015 regional conference on worker cooperatives and workplace democracy. The conference will be held in June or July 2015 in Worcester, MA. The Conference Organizer will work closely with the Eastern Coordinating Council (ECC - the conference planning committee), and focused sub-committees of the ECC.
