IYC National Conference Official Gala Book Launch

This landmark publication was launched at the National Co-operatives Conference in Port Macquarie, the premiere event on the Australian co-operative calendar in the 2012 International Year of Co-operatives.

The launch was attended by over 150 delegates from the conference as well as celebrity chef and IYC supporter Peter Russell-Clarke and The Hon Luke Hartsuyker, Federal Member for Cowper.

In launching the book, Mr Hartsuyker said "Co-operatives are great at what they do, but not so great at blowing their own trumpets," highlighting the importance of this publication in the recognition of the diversity of the co-operative sector in Australia.

"...because a lot of profit made from human effort is vanishing out of the local community where it is generated, we are becoming acutely aware that we need to join hands and protect each other by striving together to the benefit of our neighbours as well as our own family. We need to co-operate with each other - Bravo the co-operatives amongst you."
