Planning Committee

The CCMA Planning Committee is comprised of co-op managers and board members, representatives from cooperative associations, development organizations, financial partners and other various allies. By providing input from the wide food co-op movement, the committees’ goal is to ensure that CCMA is a valuable forum for success, innovation and development of the national food co-op movement. The CCMA Planning Committee is charged with guiding the selection of the conference theme and tracks. Committee members provide feedback on speakers, breakout sessions, program, and awards and special events. We are grateful for their commitment.
