Bios & Spotlight Interview

Thanks for getting involved with the 2018 Gathering of Alberta Co-operatives, we're excited to have you on board. Please take a moment to fill out the short speaker/leader biography and the blog interview forms below.

If you are delivering a keynote session, this will be to everyone (anticipated between 80 and 130 delegates). If you are delivering a workshop session, delegates will choose their workshops 4-6 weeks beforehand, so we are able to provide you with an idea of numbers.

Sample Biography:
