Accounting for cooperatives: for inclusive and sustainable business
Accounting for cooperatives: making accounting work for inclusive and sustainable business
Are you interested in cooperative values like ‘participation’ and ‘inclusion’, but find the business side of things off-putting and/or stressful? Come along to this free, Bristol focused workshop to learn about how common management accounting techniques could work for cooperatives, including costing, capacity management, and pricing strategies. The workshop will approach these techniques as practices that you can reflexively craft in your cooperative, rather than one-size fits all ‘solutions’. It will also suggest how they could be integral to growing wider networks and support structures for co-operatives in Bristol to flourish. Refreshments will be provided.

This event takes place on March 26, at 6.30-8pm. It will be held in 2D2 Social Sciences, Priory Road Complex.
