« To avoid shutting down your business, is the co-op route an option? »
Lunch-and-learn to be held April 13 in Wellington
WELLINGTON – March 21, 2016 – All French-speaking entrepreneurs interested in exploring the co-op route as a method of succession for their business are invited to a lunch-and-learn at the Wellington Rural Action Centre Wednesday, April 13, at 12 noon.
Participants will get to discuss the various stakes involved in planning the succession of their business, the rules guiding the implementation of the co-operative formula as well as the steps that have to be taken to ensure the smooth transfer of the business either by the employees and/or by the community.
The lunch-and-learn, bearing the theme « To avoid shutting down your business, is the co-op route an option? », will be presented by Marc Henrie, project manager with the Coopérative de développement régional-Acadie (CDR-Acadie) of Caraquet, NB.
The CDR-Acadie is a group of francophone co-operative associations from New Brunswick that are working together to promote and support collective entrepreneurship under the co-op formula.
The Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI and the Wellington Rural Action Centre are joining forces to host this activity, which is essentially a follow-up from last year’s visit from the CDR-Acadie.
A light meal will begin the session. The registration fee will be $5 for members of the Acadian Chamber and $10 for non-members. To register, contact Velma Robichaud at (902) 854-3439, Ext. 228, or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 8.
