Register today and join us in building the next economy!
Then be sure to reserve your room at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia by Sunday, September 8 to lock in our exclusive IMPACT 2019 room rate of $169 per night. Book your room online or call the hotel directly at (703) 521-1900.
From Ed Townley, the CEO of Agri-Mark/Cabot Cheese, to District of Columbia Councilmember Anita Bonds, we’ve pulled together a robust docket of speakers representing foundations, government, financers and developers. See the full speaker lineup.
Our tracks this year span Co-ops in Communities, Co-ops in Business, Co-ops in Development and Purchasing Co-ops. As an attendee, you’ll be part of the first-ever effort to establish the national policy strategy co-ops need to thrive. You’ll also hear how member-owned business associations are expanding co-op impact and influence directly from the CEOs of three national associations of cooperatives, credit unions and mutual insurance companies.
You’ll take away stability and sustainability strategies from America’s top co-ops; learn how to embed diversity, equity and inclusion into your work; and hear how co-ops are scaling to address the ever-widening wealth gap in the U.S. See the full agenda.
On Friday, we’re expanding our international content to include a full day of programming. With three tracks to choose from—Sustainability and Self-Reliance, Stability and Innovations in Co-op Development—attendees can participate in tailored sessions, while joining together for our plenaries: “The Road to Self-Reliance: Cooperative Engagement” and “The Challenge of Change: Staying Relevant.”
