NASCO News

 
Please join us in welcoming NASCO's newest board directors. Our dedicated directors help to set the direction of the larger NASCO community and keep NASCO responsive to the needs of the cooperative movement.  
Hey everyone! I'm Maggie (they) and I'm a 6th year co-oper at ICC Ann Arbor new to the NASCO board. I grew up in Alpena, MI before moving down to Ann Arbor for school where I studied German and psychology. I have two adorable rats (Clover and Ivy) who bring me immense joy on a daily basis. I love bonfires, river hangs, general shenanigans, and talking all things co-op with anyone who will listen.
¡Hola! My name is Jonathan Armstrong (Any Pronouns), I live in Austin, Texas, and I have been a member of College Houses Cooperatives for over two years. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in International Relations/Global Studies and Government, with a minor in History.  I am deeply inspired by the amount of support cooperatives have been able to provide in the region, and I am incredibly passionate about keeping the cooperative movement alive today!  I am hoping to use the knowledge, skills, and lived experiences I have cultivated to assist the NASCO Board of Directors with its commitment to anti-oppression work.
Lee Pepper is Communications Co-ordinator at the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada, which represents and serves over 900 housing co-ops across Canada. They are active in their home of Ottawa, Ontario, on issues of affordable housing and 2SLGBTQ+ justice. They’re excited to get to know NASCO and its members.
