The following are a few of the benefits and opportunities cooperative businesses receive as Cooperative Network members.
Members have the opportunity to give their cooperatives a greater voice in legislative advocacy and education programming by serving on any number of Cooperative Network committees. The association's positions, or resolutions, are determined by the membership, and Cooperative Network hosts several grassroots lobby day events for members to interact directly with their state legislators and officials.
Education and Awareness
Cooperative Network events are offered to members at a discount. Member cooperatives may also coordinate tailored trainings or board presentations with our staff. A national Co-op Month theme, logo, and campaign materials are made available for free every year to help coordinate and launch the October celebration.
The following benefits are exclusively available to Cooperative Network members at no additional cost.
