Early bird registration is now open for NCBA CLUSA’s Annual Cooperative IMPACT Conference, scheduled for October 4-5, 2023. We’re back in person this year at the National Press Club in Washington, DC and looking forward to a robust lineup of programming.
Early bird pricing is available until August 31. Don’t miss out on our exclusive rate of $235 for NCBA CLUSA members and $395 for stakeholders on all in-person programming on October 4 and 5.
Our theme this year is “Rooted, Resilient and Ready.” Rooted in our shared identity, cooperatives continue to demonstrate the resilience of our business model—even in the face of a global pandemic, persistent inequity and inequality, and economic uncertainty. Stronger than ever, cooperatives are ready to take on the most critical challenges facing people, communities and businesses today. From navigating a rapidly changing business environment and advancing climate justice to building a more inclusive economy, co-ops can be more impactful than ever.
The IMPACT Track will take place in person on October 4 and 5 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Space is limited for our Hike the Hill advocacy event and Co-op Identity Reception at REI Co-op’s flagship store in Washington, DC, so reserve your spot soon!
