Our 51st annual NASCO Institute is officially in the books! On November 8-10, 2019, over 350 cooperators from across North America and beyond joined us in Austin, TX to share and learn about cooperative skill-building, anti-oppression, co-op development, and more. Huge thanks to all who attended or supported from afar! NASCO Institute 2020 will be held November 6-8 in Ann Arbor, MI.
Jacques Côté, Noni Session, Geoff Mayers, Christina Gosnell, Steve Winter, and Zane Selvans were honored as inductees in the NASCO Hall of Fame on Saturday November 9, 2019 during NASCO Institute.  Learn more about our inductees and the amazing work that they've done for the communities.

Resources for your Co-op

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 40 million Americans living with a disability. As mission-driven organizations with a commitment to voluntary and open membership, cooperatives have a responsibility to assess the inclusiveness of their communities to differently-abled people. Check out the resources below to learn more about legality, funding for remodeling projects, overall accessibility, and allyship.

Many Hands: Building a Cooperative Future just made its Youtube debut! Filmed in 2013, this is an inspirational chronicle of the cooperative movement in Austin, Texas, and also an organizing tool for anyone searching for a cooperative approach to broader empowerment and stronger community.

Whether brand new to the concept of cooperatives, or a veteran ‘cooperator’ looking to further expand a community, this documentary shows us what it takes to follow our passions and create something that will benefit generations to come.

We recommend making a big batch of popcorn and getting your members together for a movie night!
