The Society is a non-profit distributing, member-based organisation. Our charitable objects are to advance the education of the public concerning all aspects of the co-operative movement, and co-operative forms of structure. In particular, we aim to assist, commission and/or identify, and to publish research, and to promote the exchange of information and experience on co-operative studies and research.
