Breaking Barriers to Build Co-operation
-----------------------------------------------

Co-operative educators, leaders and communicators from the USA, Canada 
and the Caribbean are invited to participate in the Association of Co-operative 
Educators (ACE) Annual Institute for 1997, which has as its theme "Breaking 
Barriers to Build Co-operation in the New Millennium".

The event will take place in Toronto from April 30 - May 2, and will include 
sessions on educating government; barriers faced by young people as they 
look to the co-operative model; education and training in the workplace;  
new generation co-ops; and  a special session on "Thinking Outside the Box", 
which will challenge those whose minds are closed to new technology and 
new ideas.

The Institute will also provide an opportunity to visit co-operative and credit 
union Internet sites at a Cyber Bar and present a Best Ideas Showcase where 
participants can share innovative ideas with colleagues.
