Join in Live events

JIL 2019 logo

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) isn't the only way to have your say in our Co-op: you can 'Join in Live' with us too.

What is Join in Live?

We want to spread the word about the power of co-operation and get more people involved in making a difference by working together. Taking us to communities around the UK, Join in Live is a series of large events that runs every autumn. By coming along, you'll get to hear how our businesses are putting people and the planet first and help shape our future plans. It's also a great chance to try our delicious food and meet with local causes and co-operators.

When can you 'Join in Live'?

Throughout October and November this year, Council Members and colleagues from around Co-op are hoping to run 12 large Join in Live events and would love to see you at your nearest one. Going ahead with these events will depend on what government measures are in place at the time, so keep an eye on this page for the latest updates.

Join in Live Local events

This summer, we're also hoping to start running more of our Join in Live Local events. Held in Co-op stores and community venues around the UK, Join in Live Local is all about staying regularly connected with Co-op Members and customers. Our Member Pioneers and Council Members want to hear how we can better support your community through local co-operation and share all the great ways you can get involved yourself. Store colleagues will also be there to chat about how we can improve your shopping experience in your local Co-op.

Please note: going ahead with these events in summer is all dependent on when the government's 'Stay at home' measures are lifted, so we'll be closely monitoring and following the latest advice. Keep an eye on our Join in Live Local events page for updates.
