The National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) is the oldest and largest national cross sector association for cooperatives, professionals servicing co-ops, and supporters. For nearly 100 years, NCBA has been the leader in advocating for cooperatives on Capitol Hill, providing co-ops and individuals with networking opportunities, securing research and other benchmarking for the cooperative community and increasing business opportunities for its members.
Individual membership is a great way to connect to an active community of your professional peers, while gaining insight into current and emerging issues. This type of membership is open to any "in-house” co-op professionals working for a regulated entity. Consultants and service providers are encouraged to apply for an Associate membership, but are not eligible to join as Individuals.
This is your opportunity to bring the power of an NCBA membership to your entire organization. Organizational membership is a demonstration of professional leadership and a valuable investment in your co-op. This type of membership extends the benefits of individual membership to all employees within your organization and gives you a stronger presence within NCBA.
Associate membership is available to a select group of service providers and consultants who demonstrate a long-term commitment to NCBA and co-ops nationwide. As such, Associate membership is available on a company-wide or corporate level only. To maintain a healthy ratio of members to service providers, NCBA limits the number of seats available.
