Policy Roundtable

Power in Purpose: Cooperative Policy Roundtable in Maple Grove, Minnesota

NCBA CLUSA, theĀ Cooperative Development Foundation and local partners Cooperative Development Services and Cooperative Network will host a regional cooperative policy roundtable in Maple Grove, Minnesota in September.

The September 13 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 Cooperative Development Services and Cooperative Network 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).
