Tomorrow, August 15, is the last day to lock in early-bird pricing for the 2018 Co-op IMPACT Conference, a pivotal opportunity to engage with dozens of educational institutions, foundations, law and accounting firms, co-op economists, government agencies and international development organizations—each committed to advancing the shared interests of the cooperative economy.
“Nowhere but at NCBA CLUSA’s IMPACT Conference do you get to make those cross-sector connections with people … who work together to make this co-op economy really grow and thrive and get to scale,” said Camille Kerr, associate director of the ICA Group, who attended the inaugural conference as part of NCBA CLUSA’s Council of Cooperative Economists.
You can be part of the conversation at this year’s IMPACT Conference and save money in the process. Register between now and August 15 to get the early-bird rate of $625 for NCBA CLUSA members and $825 for non-members. Registration rates will increase by $200 after August 15.

With a focus on measuring co-op economic impact, building an inclusive economy and financing cooperative growth, our IMPACT Track sessions bring together co-op industry and thought leaders, policymakers and other partners to explore how co-ops are creating space for broader economic impact.
“The numbers matter because cooperatives are businesses. But [at IMPACT], it’s more than numbers. We’re also talking about people. We’re talking about the membership, and about the communities they serve,” Cornelius Blanding, executive director of the Federation of Southern Cooperatives, said at last year’s IMPACT Conference.
Join us in October to help elevate and expand an environment in which people have a greater say in their futures and more equitable access to sustainable jobs and opportunities. Together, we can build a more inclusive economy.
