Register by August 31st

Register for the in-person component of Building Blocks Hybrid 2023. This includes a 2-day intensive held in Oakland, CA from September 19-20th. Day 1 will include trainings on feasibility studies, navigating group dynamics, and cooperative sectors. We’ll also have an evening networking event for participants, trainers, and local cooperators! Day 2 will include tours of Bay Area cooperatives operating in a diverse array of industries and ownership models. We’ll visit co-ops in downtown Oakland, Berkeley, and Sonoma that include a real estate investment co-op, housing co-op, multi-stakeholder food hub cooperative, and worker co-ops!

This training is ideal for participants who have taken Building Blocks Online 2020-2022 and would like the experience of in-person networking and co-op site visits.

CW has booked a room block for this event. Single and double rooms are available. Participants should plan to arrive in Oakland on Monday, September 18th and depart on Thursday, September 21st. Book your room here!

Please note that the cost of tuition does not cover airfare or lodging. It does include food throughout the two days of the program.

The official deadline has passed, but funds may be made available on a case by case basis. Scholarships for this program are made possible by the generosity of CoBank, the Ralph K. Morris Foundation, Cooperative Development Foundation, and National Cooperative Bank.
