The Annual Co-operative Leaders Conference 2022 (ACLC 2022) will take place at 5 – 8 November. The highly anticipated event, which was put on hiatus in 2020 and took place in Singapore in 2021 due to the pandemic, will make its welcome return overseas at Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia.

The annual event aims to help co-operatives strengthen their processes and capabilities to learn, stay relevant, and continue serving members in Singapore. This year’s theme is “Becoming More Resilient”, and it emphasises how co-operatives need to future-proof themselves to better gear up for future challenges.

Nearly 170 affiliates and partners, including Minister of State for Culture, Community and Youth & Trade and Industry Alvin Tan, participated in last year's ACLC, which took place at Orchard Hotel where attendees joined physically and through Zoom. The event covered content across Personal Data Protection, Safe Event Management, and Governance.

ACLC 2022 is expected to see the same turnout and it will cover salient topics across CYBERSECURITY and CRISIS COMMUNICATION, as well as map out a Shared Vision of the Co-operative Movement

Affiliates can reach out to their respective relationship managers for more information. Details on sign-ups will be released soon. In the meantime, mark your calendars.

About Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Surrounded by the natural splendors of Malaysian Borneo (think: majestic coastal views, scenic rivers, and cultural villages), Kota Kinabalu makes for the ideal city-getaway. Visitors can also relish some of its bustling retail spaces, golf courses, and trendy bars too. Adventure seekers may embark on an ambitious trek to Sabah’s iconic mountain, Mount Kinabalu, too.
