Remote Staff and Student Leadership Conference

On May 27-31, NASCO is hosting a Co-op Staff and Student Leadership Conference. The virtual conference will serve as a collective learning forum that strives to empower campus co-op staff and members from across Canada and the United States.

Conference participants share ideas through workshops, discussions, peer consultancy, and informal networking.

NASCO strongly encourages member leaders, managers, and staff to attend and share individual experiences with the rest of the movement's management staff as well as to seek new solutions and gain support to face the challenges of campus co-op management.
