Navy Federal, CUNA and More Join our Co-op Festival Partners’ Lineup

NCBA CLUSA is excited to announce and thank our latest group of partners who will exhibit at or support the 2018 Co-op Festival on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on October 6 and 7: The Credit Union National Association, National Cooperative Bank, Navy Federal Credit Union and CooperationWorks!. Sunkist will support the Co-op 5K.

We’re thrilled to welcome Navy Federal Credit Union as a first-time partner this year. Organized in 1933 with just seven members, Navy Federal is now the world’s largest credit union, with more than $90 billion in assets, 7.8 million members and 17,000 employees. Navy Federal serves all Department of Defense and Coast Guard Active Duty, veterans, civilian and contractor personnel and their families, striving to be the most trusted financial institution serving the military and their families.

Get to know our other latest exhibitors:

  • Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is the only national association that advocates on behalf of all of America’s credit unions, which are owned by 110 million consumer-owners. Along with its network of affiliated state credit union leagues, CUNA delivers advocacy, professional growth and operational confidence to protect the best interests of all credit unions. CUNA is joining our festival lineup as a premier partner once again this year.
  • National Cooperative Bank is dedicated to strengthening communities nationwide through the delivery of banking and financial services, complemented by a special focus on cooperative expansion and economic development. NCB provides financial products and services for the nation’s cooperatives, their members and socially responsible organizations.
  • CooperationWorks! is a dynamic, innovative national network of skilled cooperative development practitioners dedicated to strengthening America’s cooperative movement. CW envisions a society in which thriving, cooperatively-owned enterprises are the bridge to a just, resilient democracy.
  • Providing oranges for the Cooperative Development Foundation Co-op 5K, which will happen Saturday morning during the Co-op Festival, Sunkist markets millions of cartons of premium citrus each year to more than 40 countries as the world’s largest citrus cooperative. A cooperative of family farms since 1893, Sunkist is dedicated to preserving multi-generational farms, growing the best organic citrus and sustainable growing practices. Look for lots of sweet, juicy oranges in the 5K race boxes this year.
