Donna Balkan wins CASC Merit Award

Donna Balkan of the Canadian Co-operative Association was awarded the Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation Merit Award at the annual co-op research conference of CASC last week in Victoria, BC. Donna has been a steward of the CASC scholarships for a number of years, she enthusiastically promotes the work of Canadian co-op researchers and she elevates the awareness of co-operatives across our country (and beyond). In addition, Donna also engages in research as a practitioner. At the conference last week she presented a study of Canada’s largest co-ops and how they showcase (or fail to showcase) co-op identity on their websites. She created metrics to rank performance on measures of co-op communications.

CASC’s board and members were thrilled to celebrate someone who has contributed so much. If you would like to congratulate her, you can do so on twitter using #coopresearch or by email at donna.balkan@coopscanada.coop

Great work Donna!
