Co-operative Party Annual Conference
The Annual Conference of the Co-operative Party takes place this year in Manchester on the weekend of 7-9 September 2012 at New Century Hall, Corporation Street, Manchester M4.
Hundreds of delegates from local Co-operative Parties and co-operative societies will gather to share ideas, listen to Co-operative Parliamentarians and practitioners, get the latest news from the co-operative movement and raise the profile of co-operation and mutuality. Ed Balls MP, Stephen Twigg MP, Cathy Jamieson MP, Johann Lamont MSP and Tom Watson MP are among the speakers at this year’s conference.
A co-operative marketplace will have stalls showcasing the best across the Co-operative and Labour movements marking the International Year of Co-operatives in the home of the international co-operative movement.
There will be sessions and fringes across the weekend, including the launch of an exhibition of Co-operative Party history at the People’s History Museum; Co-operative Women’s Network; Parliamentary Q&A; fringes on co-operative energy, Fairtrade and housing; and reports on activity in Scotland and Wales.
We are holding our annual fundraising dinner with guest speaker Tom Watson MP. Places are limited and last year’s sold out quickly, so book now!
