The 2013 NASCO Institute, “A Fire in Our Bellies: Food Justice and Cooperatives,” is now accepting session proposals and suggestions! We are seeking five types of submissions: workshops, panel discussions, skillshares, films, and caucuses/working groups. More information about each kind of session can be found in the 2013 NASCO Institute Session Proposal Form. http://nasco.coop/institute/proposals The deadline to submit proposals is July 18, 2013. Proposals will be evaluated on a rolling basis, so get your proposal in early! Staff are happy to discuss your session proposal ideas; email remy(at)nasco.coop to get in touch. * Presenters receive free registration and partial funding for travel expenses. Because we have limited resources, we may prioritize presenters with lower travel costs or presenters who are able facilitate more than one session. We are not able to offer funding to skillshare presenters (unless they are also presenting a workshop or other session). More information about the 2013 NASCO Institute can be found at http://www.nasco.coop/institute

- Ballots are allocated on the basis of one ballot for every five members of your co-op. All fractions are rounded up. For example, if your co-op has 200 members, your co-op receives 40 ballots.
- There are 8 board seats open at this time. Your co-op can cast votes equal to your number of ballots multiplied by the number of seats open. For example, a co-op with 40 ballots will receive 8 times 40 ballots or 320 votes in total.
