An important component of NCBA CLUSA’s mission to serve cooperatives in the 5 areas listed above is providing targeted technical assistance where applicable. NCBA CLUSA’s Associate Member program is designed to provide key business and educational resources exclusively to NCBA CLUSA members that help bridge operational gaps and improve performance.
Associate Members are non-cooperative service providers that are interested in serving, working and doing business with cooperatives. While Organizational Members are structured as cooperative entities and Individual Members are solitary supporters of the movement, Associate Members provide strategic and operational support through their various areas of expertise. NCBA CLUSA connects its Associate Members to our member network via educational and non-intrusive inbound marketing and sponsorship activities, helping you build lasting relationships of mutual benefit.
Our list of past Associate Members has included lawyers and accountants for cooperatives, electronic voting services, rebate management and central billing consolidation providers, education management platforms, financial services and a host of other core business services that cooperatives need on a day-to-day basis. NCBA CLUSA actively seeks out organizations with past experience working with cooperatives and whose services are applicable across the diverse cooperative sectors we serve.
