NCBA CLUSA is seeking proposals for conference sessions and panels through March 5 for the 2018 Cooperative IMPACT Conference. This is your opportunity to help amplify the impact co-ops already have in the U.S. and around the world and explore new ways co-ops can drive even greater economic growth and participation.
Our theme for 2018 is “The Cooperative Economy: Grow, Participate, Connect” and submissions should reflect that focus. Please carefully read our full Call for Proposals before submitting a session! All proposals for IMPACT 2018 must be submitted electronically via the form on this page.
Scheduled for October 3 – 5 in Arlington, Virginia, IMPACT 2018 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.
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 5, 2018.
If selected, your photo, biography, presentation title, session description and learning objectives will be published on the IMPACT Conference website.
