NCBA CLUSA, the Cooperative Development Foundation and local partner California Center for Cooperative Development will host a regional cooperative policy roundtable in Sacramento, California in September.
The December 10 event will spur discussion around creating an enabling policy environment for cooperative development.
With 65,000 cooperative establishments and a total membership of more than 115 million people, co-ops are a powerful part of the U.S. economy. And while cooperatives contribute to the creation of healthy, sustainable and equitable communities, policies at the national, state and local level can hinder their growth and development.
This one-day roundtable discussion is an opportunity to connect with local leaders and cooperative business and development experts to identify and articulate the most significant strategic national, state and local policies, financing mechanisms and other systems and structures that support or impede cooperative development.
Special thanks to our local host partner the California Center for Cooperative Development for planning and logistical support. The roundtable discussions are a joint initiative of the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF) and the National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International (NCBA CLUSA).
