Our September Co-op Circle Happy Hour features SymbiOp’s JT Yu


Are you ready to connect virtually with some of your cooperative peers, share your work, or discuss trending topics that the co-op community is navigating? We invite you to join us at NCBA CLUSA’s next Co-op Circle Happy Hour, scheduled for Thursday, September 14 from 3-4 pm EDT.

This virtual happy hour event offers a free community-based opportunity to connect and engage with fellow cooperative professionals on important issues, timely challenges and needs for the co-op community, and helpful resources to support your work. Our September event will be hosted by JT Yu, Marketing and Business Development Lead for SymbiOp, a worker-owned ecological garden shop and landscaping service. Yu will lead an engaging discussion on Principle 6 and explore the vision, purpose and benefit of creating a co-op movement. 

We encourage you to tune in each month as NCBA CLUSA partners with cooperative professionals to host a virtual meetup. We enjoy great conversation and make new connections that support the work of each co-op professional. Our discussion style is intended to empower your questions and comprehension through an active and thought-provoking discussion. Mix and mingle with other NCBA CLUSA members and get plugged into our Circle Community as you join us.
