September 15, 2022 – RDÉE PEI: French-speaking businesspeople interested in learning more about sustainable development, including its « profits, people and planet » concepts, are invited to attend the free Entrepreneurs’ and Co-operators’ Morning Conference on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 8 a.m. at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside.
Two major entrepreneurial competitions taking place over the next few months will also be launched during the event.
The morning, which will include a buffet breakfast, will serve as the kickoff to Co-op and Small Business Week, which runs Oct. 16-22. The event is presented and sponsored jointly by the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE), RDÉE Prince Edward Island, the Wellington Rural Action Centre and CBDC Central PEI.
“The national themes of Co-op Week and Small Business Week both touch on sustainable development, while integrating the principles of innovation, inclusion, solidarity and responsible development,” explains Raymond J. Arsenault, CCAFLIPE’s event coordinator.
“Furthermore, the RDÉE is getting more involved in this sector and is preparing to launch a new sustainable development accompaniment project for francophone businesses and organizations. For all these reasons, we decided this year to explore this theme further during our Entrepreneurs and Co-operators Morning Conference.”
