Purchasing co-ops and local/regional chambers of commerce are natural power partnerships in the making.
Purchasing co-ops provide the collective infrastructure for independent businesses to thrive by joining forces to maximize cost efficiencies and deliver excellent quality products and services to achieve superior economies of scale. Local and regional chambers of commerce focus on maximizing economic development through public, private and social partnerships, and can drive positive community impact through the chamber’s initiatives to promote vibrant, diverse and thriving business communities.

- Showcase the benefit of purchasing co-ops and connecting them to policymakers, resources, and other connections to expand business engagement with purchasing co-ops.
