At NCBA CLUSA’s inaugural Co-op IMPACT Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in sessions crucial to the future of the cooperative business model. Supporting the content this year are 19 organizations that NCBA CLUSA is proud to work with and recognize as important leaders in efforts to build a more inclusive economy. They range from local service providers to leading financial institutions, and we encourage you to meet with and thank these organizations for their generous stewardship, engagement and commitment to our first-of-its-kind national co-op conference.
Several of our sponsors will be presenting unique aspects of the conference. Please take a few moments and get to know your 2017 Co-op IMPACT Sponsors!
