In Person CCMA 2020 has been cancelled, goes virtual!

After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19, including guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, it is with great regret that we announce the unavoidable cancellation of this year’s CCCMA conference, which we had planned to hold in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on June 4-6. More details about the cancellation can be found here.

UW Center for Cooperatives staff and the CCMA Planning Committee are exploring the possibility of making some of CCMA 2020 content available online. Please complete a brief survey to share your thoughts on content and level of interest in participating.

Please note that tickets for the Co-op Tours are available as an a la carte selection and are not included in the conference registration fees. More information on this change here.

Co-op Tours are Separate? Why?

Our co-ops hosts work hard to develop thoughtful tours to show off their co-op and community. In order to better gauge participation and align bus needs appropriately, we ask that participants interested in the Co-op Tours register separately. Unfortunately, the co-op tours will not be developed until closer to the conference, so it is a leap of faith! We know that Sioux Falls has much to offer and we trust that our co-op hosts will show us her gems!


All registration fees must be paid in advance. Payments can be made by:

  1. Credit Card: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Diners or American Express are all accepted
  2. Check: please make checks payable to Conference Services and mail payment to:

Conference Services
Memorial Union
800 Langdon St
Madison, WI 53706

Checks must be received within fourteen days of registration or your registration will be automatically cancelled. The exception to this deadline are registrations that occur less than two weeks before the start of the Conference; all checks and money orders must be received by the Wednesday prior to the start of the Conference.

UWCC will charge attendees a $30.00 returned check fee to cover the administrative costs.


Conference registrants cancelling their registration on or before May 27, 2020 will receive a refund of the conference registration fee, less a $75 administration fee per person for full registration. Cancellations and refunds must be requested in writing to UW Center for Cooperatives Outreach Specialist, Megan Webster at mawebster@wisc.eduRefunds are not provided for guests who do not attend the conference. Substitutions are accepted at any time prior to the start of the program at no additional cost. It is highly recommended that substitutions are completed by May 27, 2019 to ensure conference credentials will be ready upon the start of the conference.
