This year’s theme not only unifies messaging during the month of October, but also offers customizable resources that are relevant across sectors. NCBA CLUSA and the Cooperative Network today launched this year’s theme for National Co-op Month, “Co-ops Commit,” at the 2017 Cooperative Communicators Association (CCA) Institute meeting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana this week.

The theme can be used on its own or extended with sub-themes, such as Co-ops Commit to Community, Co-ops Commit to Impact, Co-ops Commit to Sustainability and Co-ops Commit to Kindness.

As a product of the Co-op Month Planning Committee—launched at last year’s Institute—the theme will not only unify messaging during the month of October, but also offer customizable resources that reflect the collaborative, cross-sector nature of the committee.

Resources for 2017 National Co-op Month will again be hosted by NCBA CLUSA at coopmonth.coop. Initial logo files are now available; posters, sample press releases, social media graphics, talking points and activity ideas are coming soon!

Co-led this year by NCBA CLUSA and Cooperative Network, the Co-op Month Planning Committee includes representation from the following national, regional and local organizations: National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, National Cooperative Bank, National Co+op Grocers, Organic Valley, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Business – Cooperative Service, Cooperatives for a Better World, Minnesota Cooperative Education Foundation, Flint Energies, Hanover Co-op Food Stores and Tri-Country Electric Co-op.

National Co-op Month is observed annually in October. NCBA CLUSA will kick off this year’s celebration at the Co-op Festival on the National Mall September 30 and October 1.
