In Fall 2014, a member of a NASCO member co-op passed away unexpectedly. This document, produced by the staff of the co-op, is an anonymized account of the co-op's response to this tragedy.
In 2012, the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC) performed a survey of the socio-demographics of its entire membership. The survey had an overall response rate of 73% (1,256 members). The survey document, the survey results, and multiple presentations/ analyses of the survey results are attached. The BSC intends to conduct on a periodic basis in order to have more definitive data on their membership over time.

In the co-ops, some members are elected to be managers at their house. These managers specialize in coordinating different parts of the house's operations, such as food service, maintenance, or social activities.

The PowerPoint and two scenarios were part of a workshop at the 2009 Staff and Managers Conference.
This document contains a cover letter describing the intention and purpose of the workshop, the workshop outline, and some notes on what the group brainstormed. This workshop was created by Kate "Sassy" Sassoon for 10-30 participants.
