Co-operative Enterprise


Dr. Ian MacPherson, Global Co-operator, educator, historian, humorist, friend, and mentor to a great many, was a founding member, and first President of the Global Co-operative Development Group Inc.  The group is global non-profit development co-operative.

In 2011 at the invitation of Terry MacDonald, Ian joined Greg Wallace and Terry in a major project which after more than two years resulted in Ian co-authoring what was to be his final and we would like to think one of his favorite books - "Co-operative Enterprise Building a Better World".  

Ian passed away suddenly, Saturday November 16, 2013 just four days prior to the formal global book launch webinar held November 20.   You may wish to watch a global tribute to Ian as provided by ICA in their e-Digest June 2014 by clicking here.

The following are friends or supporters of the work which Ian, Greg, and I started, or are now doing.   The photos of persons below are entirely random and are NOT in any order of importance or priority.   We sincerely thank everyone who has committed their ideas and energy towards the book which we published in late 2013 and we sincerely hope you will wish to continue to follow and be active in our work going forward.
