  • Research assistant Alejandro Lomeli Viramontes from Mexico spent three months with us working on various projects with Murray; he returned home at the end of August.

  • Danielle Potter, who joined us on contract in November to help establish the Centre’s new blog, will be leaving us at the end of June for new pastures. Danielle has been an invaluable help providing material for the blog, regular Twitter and Facebook posts to promote the Centre, and in setting us up on LinkedIn, which will eventually provide the Centre with a large professional network of like-minded researchers. We are sad to see her go but wish her the best in her new endeavours.

  • Paul Thompson, an MPA student at the School of Public Policy, joined us in February to work on the development of a MOOC (massive open online course) on co-operative governance. The MOOC will run for six weeks this fall and is free to anyone, anywhere in the world.

  • Aasa Marshall, an MPP student at the School of Public Policy and a Centre research assistant for several months, has left us for a position with Co-operatives First. While with us, Aasa did a lot of data entry and clarifying/categorizing data collected during the Co-operative Innovation Project. She also helped analyze survey data and write the final report for a Co-operatives-First-funded project measuring the level of co-op knowledge among economic and community developers. She wrote two pieces for the Centre’s blog and assisted with the Saskatoon Co-op Association governance review project.
