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 rbrown@cdi.coop

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.
