About this event

The University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives is excited to announce that the 2020 Consumer Cooperative Management Association (CCMA) Conference will now take place virtually from June 8-12, 2020.

Whether participating from your co-op, couch or home office, get ready to learn from and with your cooperative peers from across the country. What discoveries have we made over last several weeks? What does it look like to be an essential community resource during these challenging times? How do we move forward as stores and as a movement?

What can I expect from Virtual CCMA 2020?

  • Engaging webinars featuring your cooperative peers sharing their lessons learned and strategies for the future (join live or watch the recordings later!)
  • Breakout sessions after each webinar where attendees can gather to continue the conversation around webinar themes
  • Opportunity to kick back and connect over a beverage (BYOB) at the Columinate Virtual Hospitality Suite
  • An interactive, online scavenger hunt featuring prizes such as a free registration to CCMA 2021
