Coop Biz Development Legislation Advocacy

Fellow Cooperators,

We're launching an important campaign in support of legislation that will lead to significant Cooperative business development in underserved areas throughout the country. Its passage will change the face of Cooperative business development, opening Co-ops in places that can greatly benefit from the wealth creation, jobs, and stability Co-ops can bring to communities.

As believers in the Cooperative business model, it is our responsibility to support this legislation's passage as best we can.

We're hosting a conference call to discuss the legislation, campaign strategies, and begin implementing initial strategies. All Co-op Developers/Advocates/Friends are encouraged to participate. So please forward this along to anyone who may be interested. The more, the merrier!

Thursday - June 23rd - 1:00 - 2:00pm Eastern
The phone number is 605-562-3000
Access code 983018#

Before the call, we'd like you to help us gather information on who may be able to support this campaign in key Congressional Districts. Click HERE to open a shared Google Document and fill in any information you have about possible connections to co-op supporters in these districts. If you find your own Representative, speak up and let me know!

Hope to talk to you on Thursday!

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or suggestions.

Cooperation Works! Advocacy Plan Coordinator
