Join us Friday 8/26 from 7:30-900 pm at the Wisconsin State Historical Society for a Public Program open to the Madison community featuring Anne Reynolds

In the context of today’s housing crisis, how might we create affordable housing options that foster connection, support ecological regeneration and create economic wellbeing for all?

The Cohousing Association of the US is proud to feature Cooperative Hall of Fame Inductee, Anne Reynolds, as the keynote speaker for the National Cohousing Conference’s Public Program. Free and open to the public, this event will explore the connections between the cohousing and cooperative movements. With an emphasis on affordability, we will explore opportunities for expanding our impact and collaborating to create housing options that are sustainable, equitable and rooted in community.

Space is limited for this public event, please register to be on the list and arrive early as seating will be available first come first serve. You can register for this through your full conference registration, but if you are not coming for the full conference please register below. 

Anne Reynolds

Anne Reynolds has been a driving force in the Cooperative movement for almost 35 years, and was inducted into the Cooperative Hall of Fame in 2019. 

As they stated, she has been “a fixture of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Cooperatives—the U.S.’s premier cooperative research center—Anne has contributed significantly to scholarship on cooperatives. Her career has not only spanned co-op sectors, but bridged gaps: between academics and business leaders, between strategic thinking and practical application and across deep ideological and cultural divides.”
