AVCU Cabot create Vermont Cooperative Summit
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (9/2/10)--The Association of Vermont Credit Unions (AVCU), Cabot Creamery and five other state and national cooperatives will conduct a summit meeting of cooperatives in South Burlington on Oct. 14. The Vermont Cooperative Summit 2010, the second statewide gathering of cooperative leaders, has a theme--Building on the Power of Cooperatives. Cooperatives statewide and from the region will hear new ideas, share lessons and learn economies to be leveraged, AVCU said. A gubernatorial debate on cooperatives between Republican Brian Dubie and Democrat Peter Shumlin will be a highlight during the summit. The one-hour debate should draw significant media attention to the cooperatives gathered for the event, AVCU said. Also featured will be:
* Vermont economist Art Woolf, highlighting the history and impact of cooperatives on Vermont; * AVCU lead lobbyist Adam Necrason, providing an overview of the 2010 elections and what they mean for cooperatives; and * Eight breakout sessions, covering topics such as merchant processing for cooperatives, legal issues, marketing, and investments and borrowings for cooperatives.
