NCBA theme: transforming the economy with co-ops.

The National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) will hold its 2010 annual meeting May 4-6 at the Capitol Hilton in Washington D.C., where the theme will be: "Cooperatives Transforming the Economy." The conference will focus on the role cooperatives have played during the economic crisis and how co-ops can create their own economy by leveraging the 6th co-op principle: Cooperation Among Cooperatives.

Among the breakout sessions are: Collaborative Networks: Building Cooperative Bridges to a Sustainable Tomorrow; Transformational Communication that Builds Group Cohesiveness; and Cleveland's New Evergreen Employee Cooperatives, among others.


The NCBA meeting is the only cross-sector national conference offering educational breakout sessions on how all cooperative sectors can work together to create positive change and offering networking opportunities to meet co-op leaders from all over the United States. This year's meeting introduces a new Best Practices session, during which participants have the chance to share what works at their coops and to learn from peer successes. Attendees will also be making trips to visit their elected officials.
