Something new for 2018.....

We’re excited to announce that, for the first time ever in our nine year history, the co-hosts of Up and Coming - the Indiana Cooperative Development Center (ICDC) and Food Co-op Initiative (FCI) - are seeking peer proposals for workshop sessions through June 30th, 2017.  Food co-op start-up organizers, your peers want to learn from YOU!

We are specifically looking for session proposals from those that are actively organizing a startup food co-op; those who were core organizers of their open startup food co-op; or those who are GMs/board members who helped to get their co-op's store open and continue to serve in a leadership role at this time at their startup food co-op, post-open. 

See the file below for more details.
