NASCO Institute

Since 1978, 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. The annual NASCO Institute is always a one-of-a-kind opportunity to network with hundreds of cooperative leaders and employers from across the US and Canada, to caucus about pressing issues, and to work on building an inclusive and accessible cooperative movement.

NASCO Institute 2020 will take place November 6-8th in Ann Arbor, MI. 

NOTE: We are aware that there is a possibility of NASCO Institute being affected by COVID-19. We are planning for contingency options for remote or hybrid remote conferences in the fall, are in touch with the University of Michigan Union on their local logistical issues, and will be collecting feedback on best practices for remote events and training through Spring.
