Join us June 9-11, 2022 !
CCMA 2022 will be in person!
We are thrilled to bring food cooperators together again in person. Read our CCMA COVID Safety Policy Page to see precautions we are taking to make CCMA as safe as possible.
THEME: Rooted: Renewing our cooperative identity
Today’s social, political, and ecological crises have left many of us feeling uprooted and burned out. Like the revitalization of a prairie after a fire, how can we use the challenges of the last two years to grow a more resilient cooperative community that is diverse, connected, and thriving? How can we use our cooperative identity to expand our imagination about what is possible?
Our deep cooperative roots help us survive during times of upheaval; however, we are at an inflexion point. It is time to take stock and reexamine the direction and identity of our cooperatives through the lenses of inclusivity and sustainability. CCMA 2022 will focus on strategies for building resilience and vitality through our diverse experiences and our shared cooperative identity.
