Building a democratic economy rooted in community.

Co-op Month in October

Many of you probably already know that October is national Co-op Month. There are nearly 40,000 co-ops and credit unions across our country and this is our month to not only celebrate all things co-op, but to also remind our friends, family, neighbors and everyone else of the value that co-ops bring to our communities. This year, the National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International has chosen “Co-ops Commit” as the theme for the month, highlighting the many ways that co-ops are committed to their communities.

Is your co-op planning an event for Co-op Month? We’d love to hear about it. If you are planning anything or would be willing to help us coordinate, please email Rob Brown

Do you need some help or inspiration? Here are a couple of great resources.

  • The official Co-op Month website has downloadable images for both print and social media, activity ideas, writing samples, and a whole host of other educational and inspirational items.   This is a wonderful resource so please look. Many of the ideas and items aren’t limited to Co-op Month and can be used year-round.

And lastly, just a reminder that we still need a few volunteers to staff the table at the Common Ground Fair.   Please sign up here by Friday, Sept. 8.
