Early-bird registration is now open for NCBA CLUSA’s 2020 Cooperative IMPACT Conference, scheduled for October 5-9. As a fully virtual event this year, we are thrilled to make this event even more accessible and inclusive.
Register now and lock in the early-bird rate of $25 for NCBA CLUSA members and $35 for non-members—an exclusive savings only available until August 15. Between August 15 and 30, NCBA CLUSA member and non-member rates will increase to $49 and $75, respectively. After the early-bird registration period, IMPACT 2020 will cost $99 for members and $149 for non-members.
Under the theme, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,” IMPACT 2020 will amplify how cooperatives are addressing their obligations to create diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces and boards, and how co-ops can better meet the needs of communities that have been excluded from economic participation and advancement.
NCBA CLUSA’s Cooperative IMPACT Conference is the only national, cross-sector event elevating the national conversation around a trusted, proven way to do business and build communities. The annual conference provides an unparalleled platform to reenergize the cooperative movement and galvanize its champions around building the next economy.
Register today to join hundreds of co-op developers, financers, community and city leaders, innovators, economists and policymakers in October! During the registration process, you can also choose to attend the virtual Cooperative Hall of Fame and virtual Co-op 5K. Follow the prompts to be part of these key cooperative events also happening in October.
Finally, we are thrilled to once again offer a pre-conference session from the International Centre for Co-operative Management at Saint Mary’s University, this time on excellence in member-centric governance and management. Designed for seasoned decision-makers and emerging leaders from any sector or type of cooperative, this participatory education experience focuses on enhancing your knowledge and building your network. Discuss and debate the many facets of the membership aspect of cooperatives, including: people-centered management, ownership and control, and network governance. Grapple with the unique challenges inherent in leading and managing cooperatives while including voice, representation, participation and engagement of people at the core.
