Registration is Open: NASCO Institute 2017

Over 400 participants will converge on Ann Arbor, Michigan from November 10th through 12th, 2017 to share ideas, learn new skills, and look at issues affecting the cooperative movement worldwide.

Since 1977, NASCO's Cooperative Education & Training Institute has been widely recognized as one of the most important training and networking opportunities available to members, directors, staff and managers of group-equity cooperatives.

Support NASCO Institute

Low-Income Scholarship Fund

The NASCO Low-Income Scholarship Fund supports low-income emerging cooperative leaders who would otherwise be unable to attend the Institute by offsetting their registration fees ($220 for members, $420 for non-members) and travel expenses ($50 to $400). This program allows NASCO to create a more economically and geographically diverse demographic of attendees by providing support to youth who live in remote locations and/or are not receiving organizational support. 

NASCO is hiring a Director of Education

North American Students of Cooperation (NASCO) is accepting applications for the position of Director of Education.

Established in 1968 by members of student housing cooperatives, NASCO is a bi-national membership association of non-profit cooperatives in the US and Canada. With nearly 60 member cooperatives representing 3,000 cooperators, NASCO is governed by three separate boards and is served by five staff focusing on distinct program areas: Education; Development; Property management; Community engagement; and Operations.

We're looking for a cooperative artist!

This year we are searching for a cooperative artist to create the art for NASCO Institute 2017. This year's theme will focus on grassroots democracy. The chosen artist's art will be featured on posters, shirts, the program, banner and more. We’re expecting the artist we choose to work through concepts and designs with the NASCO team and deliver on a specific timeline. The chosen artist will be provided a $300 stipend.
 

Announcing NASCO's new Director of Operations

On April 30th, Rek Kwawer will step down as NASCO's Director of Operations. Rek started at NASCO in 2014 and has enjoyed getting to work with such a variety of co-ops and co-op members. She is stepping down for personal health reasons and hopes to be working with the co-op movement again soon. Rek plans to remain involved in NASCO by presenting workshops at NASCO Institute.
 
We have been proud of the progress that Rek has driven with her time on staff. It is with deep appreciation that we share that Rek will be stepping down.
