Power in Purpose: Part 3-Strategies

This is just a short post.

It was an incredible day at this Co-op Round table. We shared stories and strategies.  We discussed how to help the Co-op Movement keep its incredible momentum.

As we enter the final week of National Co-op Month, I am finding this year to be exhilarating. As I plan on writing next week, The Co-op Decade concludes this year (depending on how you count decades, of course), but we are on the verge of a Co-op Century. What our communities do between now and the next recession will be crucial to (dare I say the word) capitalizing on the the 7 years since the Year of the Co-op.

Thank you all for reading! I hope that we continue to have great stories to share and are willing to talk about where we can improve!
