Staff & Member Leadership Convening 2023

 Registration is closed for this event
NASCO's 2023 Staff & Member Leadership Convening will take place in-person in Madison, Wisconsin on July 26-28, 2023!  Registration is open now through Wednesday, July 12 (closing at 11:59pm central time).

The convening is a cooperative education and training program that is designed specifically to meet the needs of staff, managers, and member-leaders of group equity and campus-based housing cooperatives. This year, as we return to convening in person, program content will focus on building connections between co-ops across North America while spotlighting cooperative ventures in our host city of Madison, Wisconsin. We’re so excited to gather again in person while continuing to take precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health of our most vulnerable community members.

Sessions reflecting a variety of topics help managers compare their cooperative's performance and policies to those of other co-ops. NASCO strongly encourages managers and staff to attend and share individual experiences with the rest of the movement's leadership. Attendees are encouraged to seek new solutions and gain support to face the unique challenges of co-op management. We look forward to creating a space where experienced cooperatives can share knowledge with new cooperatives, and where members feel empowered to exercise leadership in their home co-ops.
