Consumer Co-operation Today: What Works Well

UKSCS is pleased to announce the date and theme of its conference. The conference will be held in Lincoln in February and takes the opportunity to reflect on Consumer Co-operation, particularly in the context of the business and service delivery changes over the past two - three years. 

As well as panel discussions and academic papers, we feel there is much to discuss and explore about the position of consumer co-operatives today. Amongst other areas:

What today is best practice in member engagement? 

It is said that the Covid pandemic has advanced the use of IT in business by twenty years in two. How have Co-ops embraced online meetings and member events? 

Has this led to an evolution in member democracy? 

Today we have more data about our members and their purchasing habits than ever. How is this shaping our relationship with them? 

We aim to have an opportunity to share and showcase ideas about how Societies engage with members - from members investing in their societies, to increasing members share of purchases, to involvement in society democracy. 

We feel his will be a great opportunity to learn from one another and for those involved in member engagement in societies to come together, share their ideas and maybe pick up some new ones.

Does your society have something you would like to share? Have you got a paper you would like to submit?

If so, we would love to hear from you! 

Please contact by 30 November 2022:
