This Valentine’s Day, NCBA CLUSA is asking our members and the broader co-op community to #BeMyTwinPine. In the spirit of cooperation, we invite you to share what you love most about co-ops on social media.
- Share a post that captures your love for co-ops and the co-op community, or ask your favorite cooperators to #BeMyTwinPine. We can’t wait to see your photos and read your co-op “love stories.” Download one of our co-op valentines to get started!
- Be sure to tag NCBA CLUSA and add the hashtag, #BeMyTwinPine
- We’ll highlight our favorite stories in Co-op Weekly throughout the month of February!
Because our co-op valentines are a seasonal riff on the beloved Twin Pines symbol, we thought it would be the perfect time for a history refresher on why the Twin Pines were chosen as the international symbol for cooperation. James Peter Warbasse, the founder and first president of NCBA CLUSA, explained it best. Scroll down to read the full story!
