Our AGM was held from 12-4pm on 11th May at the Collection, Lincoln. The first part of the AGM was dedicated to reporting on our membership, finances and other formal matters. You can read the notes from this by clicking on the links below.
Following this, the majority of the AGM was facilitated by three speakers. First, Mike Ward led a workshop on ethnographic research, based on his doctoral work documenting the lives of young men in South Wales. Then, Joel Lazarus spoke about his project, the People’s Political Economy, which has a number of similarities to the SSC. Finally, Mervyn Wilson, from the Co-operative College, spoke about the increasing number of state schools which are converting to co-operatives and his vision for FE and HE to do the same.
Thanks to everyone who attended. Our next meeting is a workshop this Saturday, 25th May at the Involvement Centre, Mint Lane, Lincoln, where we’ll be asking, “what does ‘Free Co-operative Higher Education’ really mean?” See you there!
