Update from the Spring NASCO Properties Board Meeting

The NASCO Properties board came together to meet last month in Athens Ohio, where our members in the two Student Cooperative Organization houses are located.  Fifteen cooperators representing eleven organizations came together to share insights and troubles from their cooperatives, and to visit the members of The Vine and Firehouse in Athens.
This meeting approved the creation of several internships serving cooperatives, continued a discussion of the role co-ops can play in fighting gentrification, and updated board officer roles to make leadership more accessible to co-op members.  This meeting also approved the 2017-2018 budget for NASCO Properties, which plans to bring more co-ops into NASCO Properties and crosses the million dollar mark for the first time in the history of NASCO Properties.
