There are more than three additional weeks to help shape the 2019 Co-op IMPACT Conference. We’re seeking proposals for conference sessions and panels through April 19. This is your opportunity to discuss innovations and share best practices in governance, communication, community involvement, education and cooperation among cooperatives.
Our theme for 2019 is “Power in Purpose: Building the Next Economy” and submissions should reflect that focus. Cooperatives are principled, purpose-driven businesses that sustain communities and create economic stability.
Scheduled for October 2-4 in Arlington, Virginia, IMPACT 2019 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 25, 2019.
If selected, your photo, biography, presentation title, session description and learning objectives will be published on the IMPACT Conference website.
