This month’s Meetup, subsequent to the screening of “A Silent Transformation” the night before, will be led by our Planning Committee member Laurie Ryan-Hill, Niagara Regional Manager of the Ontario Co-operative Association.
Laurie has been working for co-ops for over 13 years, and with Ontario Co-operative Association for the past year as their Niagara Manager. Just recently, Laurie has taken a position with the Salvation Army as their Senior Employee Relations Advisor, having received her CHRL designation in 2010 and worked in Human Resources ever since. Laurie lives in St. Catharines with her husband Peter and has a grown daughter.
Laurie will discuss the film’s exploration of the co-operative self-help efforts of diverse communities (skateboarders to farmers to cinema goers) across the Province of Ontario, and its implications for Niagara and beyond.
