CoopZone announced this spring the selection of Eric Tusz-King (Master of Adult Education) as its new Course Director. Eric will fill the vacancy created by Peter Hough’s retirement.
“We are very pleased to announce this appointment,” reported Jill Kelly, CoopZone Board Chair. “Eric will bring leadership and creativity to the CoopZone’s training programs and a deep commitment to co-op development and to adult education.” …more
CoopZone also wishes to express its deep gratitude to Peter Hough, who coordinated the creation of the on-line co-op development Training Program for CoopZone, along with other very experienced developers. He has been its Course Director for the first four years of the Program, ending this summer as he retires.
