Don't miss the joint keynote speaker on September 9, 2014
Dame Pauline Green, President, International Co-operative Alliance
Dame Green will address a joint session of the Purchasing Cooperatives Conference and the Annual Cooperatives Conference on the afternoon of September 9. Her session is certain to inspire all as she challenges participants to achieve recognition for the co-operative model of business within the global institutions so that the movement can continue to grow and expand in the coming decades.
Dame Pauline Green is the first woman President of the International Co-operative Alliance in its 116 year history. Elected in 2009 at the General Assembly, Pauline argued that the time is right for radical change in the priorities of the ICA, and called on members to rally to help her achieve the sort of global body that the size and reach of the movement deserves.
