NCBA CLUSA’s Council of Cooperative Economists
NCBA CLUSA’s Council of Cooperative Economists fills a critical gap within the cooperative sector, providing a forum for best-in-class cooperative economists and other experts to explore ideas and publish research meant to help tell the story of cooperative impact in a more powerful and compelling way.
Research by the council informs the work of the Congressional Cooperative Business Caucus and the Interagency Working Group on Cooperative Development, and is meant to influence policymakers, thought leaders and other stakeholders.
The council is positioned to quickly respond to data on cooperatives collected by the 2017 Economic Census and set for release in 2020. New research and articles by members of the council are published in the Fall issue of the Cooperative Business Journal and distributed at NCBA CLUSA’s annual Co-op IMPACT Conference.
