Join us for the Fair Trade Futures Conference Sept 10-12

One of the main goals of the Fair Trade Futures conference is to empower attendees to engage in community efforts to grow awareness of the Fair Trade movement in their hometowns.

To this end, we are excited to rally City Delegations to attend. City Delegations are a way to build community before, after, and during the event, while saving on registration costs. Delegations are also encouraged to utilize the conference as an opportunity to learn new ways to reach out to your fellow community members, as well as to link up with other Fair Trade advocates, activists, and businesses in your town.

A City Delegation:

  • Includes at least five people from the same town or city attending the conference together
  • Qualifies for a discounted registration rate of $300 / person
  • Emails the Conference Organizers to let us know that you have formed a delegation and identifies one point of contact for the delegation
  • Commits to having at least one member attend the ‘Keys to a Successful Fair Trade Towns Campaign’ session during the conference.

You must log in to join the discussion. If you are not already a member registering is easy.
