October is National Co-op Month

October is  National Co-op Month and has been celebrated every year in the U.S. for over 50 years. This is a time to learn about local Co-ops and educate others about the value and benefits of belonging to a Co-op.

The theme for the 2016 National Cooperative Month in October is “Cooperatives Build,” which cooperatives are urged to reflect in their communications and outreach activities. The theme can be used on its own, or extended with sub-themes, such as: Cooperatives Build Trust; Cooperatives Build Communities; Cooperatives Build Jobs; Cooperatives Build a Better World.
