About the Cooperative Executive Roundtable

For the first time ever, CEOs from some of the nation’s largest and most influential cooperatives will come together in a roundtable format to discuss strategic opportunities for cooperatives in the U.S. The Cooperative Executive Roundtable brings together the cooperative movement’s leading executives together for a cross-sector idea exchange. This gathering is a unique opportunity to hear from visionary thinkers and to connect with your peers. The Roundtable is designed to deliver collaborative, growth-oriented discussion sessions to simulate strategic thinking about the challenges facing our domestic economy and how to best position your cooperative (specifically) and all cooperatives (collectively) to thrive in these shifting socioeconomic realities.

Join us the day before, January 26, for a reception at NCBA CLUSA Headquarters at 1775 Eye St. NW, Washington, DC 20006 followed by dinner at a nearby restaurant. NCBA CLUSA has secured a room block at The Willard for Cooperative Executive Roundtable participants.
