The coffee and food was great as was the company. This morning a full room of co-op members, developers, financiers, credit union, community business development, economic development officers, chambers of commerce representatives and community members who want to better understand how the co-operative model can help build a sustainable community gathered at the Bracebridge YWCA for engaging presentations and discussion.
There was great interest in having the contact information for the co-ops discussed available so we are posting them here in our blog, presentations to follow also!
