NCBA CLUSA is gearing up for a brand new year of professional collaboration and engagement within the co-op movement and the wider community in 2015.
Plan now to join us for the following conferences:
Our Annual Meeting, to be held May 4 – 6 in Washington, D.C., will focus on advocacy, giving our members and supporters the opportunity to bring their cooperative issues and voices directly to elected officials and policymakers in the nation’s capitol. NCBA CLUSA is actively engaged in educating leaders in Congress and the administration on the interests of cooperative business and its positive impact on the U.S. economy. This is a great event for all cooperative sectors and all levels of management to engage with legislators.
The Consumer Cooperatives Management Association’s (CCMA) conference, being coordinated by NCBA CLUSA for the first time in 2015, is scheduled for June 11 – 13 in Boise, Idaho. CCMA will bring together members of the this sector for a national conversation on the importance of food co-ops. The CCMA Planning Committee is hard at work designing an outstanding event for you!
The Purchasing Cooperatives Conference is being planned for September 2015; the location will be announced soon. Join us to meet industry icons, share best practices with your peers and connect with potential partners in the purchasing and shared services cooperative community.
In November 2015, the 2nd Annual Co-op Professionals Conference will convene in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Designed for legal and accounting professionals who serve the cooperative community, this conference is an emerging platform for professional collaboration within the co-op movement. Participants of the inaugural conference in Denver, Colorado, earned seven Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits approved by the state of Colorado. We look forward to offering more CLE opportunities in 2015.
Look for more details about these events coming in January!
