Held at Worcester State University, Friday, November 18, 2016.
|This day-long event will serve as a powerful forum for making and strengthening connections, as well as building ongoing collaboration. Participants will engage in various interactive activities designed to establish a regional network and support transformation related to social enterprise, social business, cooperatives, and enterprise-oriented nonprofit organizations.
