We have combined our two most popular events into an action-packed day that will leave you inspired and empowered.

We start off with our annual Gathering of Alberta Co-operatives Conference, where we working with our members to discuss how we can set a common co-operative table. 

Our morning session will focus on various aspects of government relations, and will include discussions on opportunities for us to work together to advance the Alberta co-operative movement. 

Moving into the afternoon, our focus will be on communications and branding, and we will explore ways we can stand out through the development of stronger brands that better reach and resonate with Albertans.

The afternoon will end with an MLA Reception prep, exclusive to ACCA members, where our Government Relations specialists return to provide some tips and advice to help members get the most out of the conversations later in the evening.
