The Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals Leaders’ Summit is the annual flagship event for the sector. We are delighted to host our 2018 Summit from 14-15 November in Adelaide and invite you to register with other leaders for a day of insightful discussion on the conference theme, Our Stories, Our Strength – Brand dominance, co-ops and mutuals.

The Summit kicks off with the Taste of Australia Industry Dinner on the evening of Wednesday 14 November. The industry’s ‘night of nights’ is a unique mix of stunning food, entertainment and guest speakers. The star of the night is the co-operative produce sourced from across the nation.

The Summit is a comprehensive one-day programme on 15 November featuring international keynote speakers and trade delegations from China. The Summit is designed for senior executives, directors and business leaders from across the co-operative and mutual economy. The programme is relevant to CEOs and their senior managers in finance, strategy, member relations, communications, government relations and directors of boards.
