The theme of the ICA conference is "A Co-operative Decade in Action". The programme will be built around the Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade, which aims to take cooperatives to a position of being the preferred model and as a result the fastest-growing form of enterprise by 2020. As well as the statutory meetings there will be a series of themed workshops, including CICOPA General Assembly on 2nd November. CICOPA and IHCO are organising a workshop on "Access to community services" on 3 November. See the session’s introductory video by clicking [here->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkfTVHCxlEE].
