I mentioned a few weeks back that I was participating in this year’s conference of the Society for Co-operative Studies, held at the start of September in Newcastle. I though the event – which among other things celebrated the Society’s fiftieth anniversary – well worth the effort of breaking into the two week holiday which I was supposed to be having at the time on the south coast. Lots of extra mileage, though.
I am always slightly surprised that anyone turns up for these events, since in my experience the Society is remarkably tardy in putting out the date and details. (I know, it’s all volunteer effort, I’m not really knocking anyone). But just so you know, I can give you very early notice that the 2018 edition will be at Sheffield Hallam University, once again over the first weekend in September. There: no excuses for not knowing next time.
