Early-bird registration for NCBA CLUSA’s inaugural Co-op IMPACT Conference ends a week from today. If you haven’t already registered, reserve your space by August 1 to lock in the early-bird rate of $550 for NCBA CLUSA members and $750 for non-members.
Our Early-Bird Full Registration package includes access to all plenary and break-out sessions, two receptions, our October 5 advocacy fly-in on Capitol Hill, and registration in the 2017 Co-op 5K.
As the first and only national cooperative conference of its kind, IMPACT 2017 will be this year’s premier networking and learning event for co-op members, practitioners and advocates, as well as a unique opportunity to advance the shared interests of the cooperative movement.
We’re lining up compelling programming that explores and amplifies the economic impact co-ops have in the U.S. and around the world. Highlights so far include the first-ever State of the Co-op Economy presentation and panel—featuring members of NCBA CLUSA’s Council of Cooperative Economists—and a keynote from Vern Dosch, president and CEO of National Information Solutions Cooperative and author of Wired Differently. The book makes a convincing business case for collaboration, servant leadership and shared values.
This pivotal conference will, for the first time, bring together a broad spectrum of cooperative sectors to build on and amplify the economic impact co-ops have in the U.S. and internationally. With three tracks to choose from—IMPACT, Purchasing and Co-op Professionals, attendees will have the opportunity to drill down on sector-specific learning, while also participating in activities that contribute to the greater co-op ecosystem.
We hope you’ll join us in October for this incredible learning event, as well as our Co-op Festival on the National Mall September 31 – October 1! Subscribe to Co-op Weekly today to get the latest announcements on IMPACT 2017 and the Co-op Festival delivered straight to your inbox.
