The Cooperative Executives Association of Puerto Rico (ASEC) announced that its 22nd national convention, under the theme “Strategic Sustainability and Cooperativism: An Agenda for Solidarity Action,” will be held Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2 at the Ponce Hilton Golf and Casino Resort Hotel.


Aurelio Arroyo González, chairman of the ASEC board of directors, said the convention’s educational agenda will include local and international speakers.


“The relentless search for strategic sustainability is a constant for cooperatives in Puerto Rico,” Arroyo González said in a written statement. “Cooperatives are the best example of how it is possible to harmonize efficiency and social, financial and environmental responsibility.”


He noted that this year the convention opens on Friday morning with a presentation by Rafael Torrech San Inocencio entitled “So That Our Proposal Does Not Go Unnoticed: Indispensable Issues in the Drafting of a Funding Proposal.” Also appearing on the first day’s agenda will be John Stoltzfus, manager and head of strategic investments at Oppenheimer Asset Management, who will address the topic “Economic Prospects of the Financial Markets” and participate in the forum “The New Global Political Realignment and Its Impact on the Economy.”


The panel discussion will be moderated by René Vargas Martínez, executive director of the Inclusiv network on the island, and also will feature Dr. Carlos Severino, Dr. Maya Vélez Serrano and the economist and director of the League of Cooperatives, Heriberto Martínez Otero.
