UN Declares International Year of Cooperatives

Kay Neidlinger, VP Communications, Indiana Credit Union League

The United Nations has declared 2012 the International Year of the Cooperative, but you don’t have to travel the world to see how successful the cooperative business model can be. In Indianapolis on October 28, leaders from a variety of cooperatives will gather for the fifth annual Indiana Cooperative Summit.

Featured speakers will represent several kinds of cooperatives including those devoted to finance, food, housing, and utilities – just to name a few. Each one represents a way of doing business that is contemporary, relevant and focused on human need not human greed. The hallmark of a cooperative is the members who are the owners of the business and who collectively govern it and share in the success.

Join other leaders of these successful business models to learn more about how cooperation between cooperatives can be beneficial to you, your business and your community. This opportunity to build and strengthen member-owned business connections is worth far more than the $50 registration fee.
