The 2020 Cooperative Hall of Fame inductees are known for demonstrating the grit and tenacity needed to drive change, improve lives and transform communities. While COVID-19 keeps us from meeting in person to congratulate the inductees, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate these cooperative heroes:
You can also attend the virtual ceremony. Four outstanding cooperative leaders will receive the cooperative community’s most prestigious honor on October 8, 2020 when they are inducted into the Cooperative Hall of Fame. The inductees are Ben Burkett, State Coordinator, Mississippi Association of Cooperatives; Everett M. Dobrinski, former Board Chair, CoBank; Carmen Huertas-Noble, Professor, City University of New York, School of Law; and Michael Mercer, former CEO, Georgia Credit Union Affiliates.
The Cooperative Hall of Fame is the primary fundraising event of the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF). Because of your generosity, CDF can make grants, loans and investments that support cooperative development and its infrastructure, strengthen Main Street cooperative businesses and enhance the lives of members and communities.
