Longtime food co-op conference pivots and goes virtual!

Virtual CCMA 2020 will feature cooperative leaders sharing lessons learned and strategies for the future.

Registration is now open for Virtual CCMA 2020! Hosted by the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives, the event will be an exciting, virtual conference experience where the food co-op community can come together to connect, reflect and grow during these turbulent times.

Whether participating from your co-op, couch or home office, cooperators will learn from and with their cooperative peers from across the country.

Virtual CCMA 2020 webinar lineup features cooperative leaders sharing their lessons learned and strategies for the future:

  • Successful Food Co-ops: Thriving in a Post COVID World
  • E-Commerce, Curbside Pick-up, Delivery, Oh My!: Lessons Learned and Thoughts for the Future
  • Serving Your Community During An Economic Downturn
  • Adaptive Governance = Resilient Cooperatives
  • Everyone Welcome? Prioritizing Diversity and Inclusion in Times of Crisis

Attendees will be able to attend breakout discussion groups after each webinar where attendees can gather to continue the conversation around webinar themes, kick back and connect over a beverage (BYOB) at the Columinate Virtual Hospitality Suite, and participate in an interactive, online scavenger hunt featuring prizes such as a free registration to CCMA 2021.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, we are able to keep Virtual CCMA incredibly affordable at $25 per person for the entire experience. Scholarships are available to those experience economic hardship during this time. We are grateful to the Howard Bowers Fund for extending conference scholarships to those in need of financial assistance.
