As NCBA CLUSA continues to monitor the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we are taking this opportunity to update our members and the cooperative community on the status of our upcoming events.
Annual Membership Meeting
Currently scheduled to take place on May 5 at NCBA CLUSA’s headquarters office in Washington, DC, this in-person meeting will now take place entirely online. More information on attending virtually will be available in the coming weeks.
Co-op IMPACT Conference
Currently, the 2020 Co-op IMPACT Conference will be held as planned from October 7-9 at the Marriot Metro Center in Washington, DC. Because we understand that our members are focused on providing guidance for their staff, customers and partners during this time, we have extended our request for proposals for this event through Friday, April 3. We look forward to continuously increasing the value of this conference and hope that you take the time to submit a session that will benefit your fellow cooperators.
One of the largest events in the cooperative community, the 2020 Co-op Festival will be held as planned October 10 and 11 on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
Amid the ongoing, ever-changing situation surrounding the efforts to halt the advancement of COVID-19, we will continue to monitor the information and guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
NCBA CLUSA will continue to communicate all decisions on event postponements or cancellations with our members and stakeholders.
