On 8 March 2010, CECOP organised a meeting with persons in charge of communication in CECOP member organisation including Adriana Assini (ANCPL, Italy), Pierre Liret (CGScop, France), John Goodman et Bernadette Turner (Cooperatives UK, UK) et Marianna Vilnitzky (COCETA, Spain).

This first meeting was the occasion to get to know each other, to present the activities of each organisation in terms of communication and to exchange ideas and good practices.

This new step is part of a more global initiative in order to launch a reflexion on the communication of the network and to improve the visibility of cooperatives of our sector at the European level. In order to do so, a real coordination and a common work are necessary.

All member organisations which are interested can contact Olivier Biron (cecop@cecop.coop) in order to join the working group which will meet again in 2010.
