CHS Foundation awards NASCO $26,000

We are pleased to announce that NASCO has been awarded two grants through the CHS Foundation’s 2016 Cooperative Education Grants Program. We have been generously awarded $10,000 to support NASCO’s annual Cooperative Education & Training Institute, and a $16,000 capacity building grant to grow NASCO's resource and program development capacity to more sustainable levels.

Donate to NASCO

This is how we build a stronger cooperative movement. By coming together, we demonstrate our collective values for just, equitable, and sustainable communities and economies. Every donation helps us provide:
  • One-on-one consultations with cooperatives in trouble
  • Technical consulting for start-up co-ops
  • Internships with leading co-op organizations
  • Web resources for co-ops: training guides, sample documents, videos
  • Leadership experiences in cooperative and movement organizing

Submit Resources to our Library

One of the most valuable assets of the cooperative movement is our collective knowledge, and NASCO’s Shared Resource Library, a constantly growing collection of documents and files, is a tool for sharing that knowledge. Our library relies upon your contributions. Please follow this link to share your co-op’s governance documents, member education materials, and resources.

Voting is open for NASCO's Board of Directors

Voting is now open for the four open seats on NASCO's board. Each Active Member and Individual Member will receive a ballot by mail. We encourage you to read the candidate statements here. All of the seats are for three-year terms. 

A meet-the-candidates forum will be held at NASCO Institute on Saturday, November 12, from 2:30-4pm. 

Ballots are due on January 5, 2017. 

There are also several board seats that will be filled at Institute. 

NASCO Institute is almost here

NASCO Institute is in just over a week, and we've sent out an email to everyone who is registered. If you didn't receive this email, that means you are not registered. Please register by tomorrow, November 3rd, for guaranteed meals and to be on the housing waitlist.
