Making an Impact

We believe co-ops thrive at the intersection of developers, financiers, policymakers, legal professionals and thought leaders. Our annual Co-op IMPACT Conference brings these stakeholders together foster the research and data needed to quantify co-op economic impact, influence public policy and amplify the cooperative advantage.

 “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.” – Camille Kerr, Co-op Consultant
