Cooperative Business NZ’s 2014 AGM event was a great success with an impressive line-up: a collective 1,600 years in business for 31 organisations were recognised over the evening.
With an impressive list of members it was a fantastic opportunity to praise and showcase co-ops and mutuals that epitomise the qualities, innovation, community spirit, and not least profitability that many investor owned business’ would envy.
The Awards Event was a timely way for CBNZ to celebrate co-ops and mutuals success and, through the media and other channels, to promote coops to the wider community and decision makers everywhere.
Below are a selection of photos that reflect the highlights and interaction of the Cooperative Business NZ’s AGM Event for 2014.
