As NCBA CLUSA continues to monitor the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we are taking this opportunity to update our members and the cooperative community on the status of our upcoming events.


This in-person meeting will take place entirely online on Tuesday, May 5 using the GoToWebinar platform. A registration link is coming soon!


We are pleased to announce that our 2020 Co-op IMPACT Conference, scheduled for October 7-9, will continue as planned, with the addition of an all-new virtual online component. Now a hybrid event, IMPACT 2020 will still include live, in-person programming at the Marriott Metro Center in Washington, DC. The rescheduled Cooperative Hall of Fame reception, banquet and induction ceremony will also be held at IMPACT 2020. We look forward to continuing to increase the value of the only national, cross-sector cooperative conference as we adapt to the shifting events landscape and the needs of our members and the broader cooperative community.


Due to uncertainty surrounding the ongoing, ever-changing efforts to halt the advancement of COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone Co-op Festival until 2021. We look forward to hosting this celebration of the success, diversity and impact of the co-op business model next year!

NCBA CLUSA will continue to communicate all decisions on event postponements or cancellations with our members and stakeholders. Subscribe to Co-op Weekly to stay up-to-date on the latest news and events from the cooperative community. And find the latest COVID-19 news on our resource page.
