We’re expanding our international content at the Co-op IMPACT Conference to a full day of programming


NCBA CLUSA will once again explore the intersection of domestic and international cooperative development at this year’s Co-op IMPACT Conference, highlighting lessons and insights from practitioners and partners and amplifying examples of cooperative organizations that work globally to impact the lives of tens of millions of producers, consumers and workers.

This year, we’re expanding our international content to include a full day of programming on Friday, October 4. With three tracks to choose from—Sustainability and Self-Reliance, Stability, and Innovations in Co-op Development—attendees can participate in tailored sessions, while joining together for our three plenaries:

  • The Road to Self-Reliance: Cooperative Engagement
  • The Challenge of Change: Staying Relevant
  • Cooperative Contributions to Equality, Peace and Sustainability Around the World

Get a preview of the rest of our Friday sessions here. Be sure to check out our other tracks, too: Co-ops in Communities, Co-ops in Business and Purchasing. Under the theme, “Power in Purpose: Building the Next Economy,” IMPACT 2019 will amplify how cooperatives—as principled, purpose-driven businesses—are building a stable, sustainable economy.
