Global Conference & General Assembly

The International Co-operative Alliance’s global conferences each time bring together cooperative thought leaders and businesses for learning, debating and networking. The global conferences happen every two years.

The General Assembly is the highest authority of the ICA and is made up of representatives appointed by ICA member organisations. The General Assembly meets every year, for a full agenda during the Global Conference, and with a limited agenda the other years.

The upcoming 2019 Global Conference & General Assembly will be organised in 2019, place to be confirmed.
