NCBA CLUSA is seeking proposals for conference sessions and panels through Thursday, April 6 for the 2021 Cooperative IMPACT Conference. This is your opportunity to discuss innovations and share best practices in governance, communication, community involvement, education and cooperation among cooperatives.
Our theme for 2021 is “Embracing Our Cooperative Identity,” and submissions should reflect that focus. IMPACT 2021 will challenge cooperators everywhere to commit to a deeper understanding of what makes cooperative enterprise unique.
Please carefully read our full Call for Proposals before submitting your session or panel! All proposals for IMPACT 2020 must be submitted electronically via the form on this page.
Scheduled for October 4-8, IMPACT 2021 will bring together hundreds of cooperative leaders, developers, professionals, academics and policymakers—all with the overarching goal to advance the shared interests of the cooperative ecosystem. Currently, we are planning a virtual event, but there may be in-person opportunities for a few sessions in Washington, DC.
To ensure full and fair consideration, proposals will be evaluated and selected by NCBA CLUSA based on criteria that include relevance, clarity, innovation, application, format and program balance. Applicants will be notified of selection decisions by email no later than April 30, 2021.
