The National Farmers Union will host the College Conference on Cooperatives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, February 16-19.  During the three days, participants will hear from experts in the field of cooperatives, participate in interactive learning activities and workshops, and tour co-ops in the Twin Cities.  The event attracts students from across the country and is beneficial to those new to co-ops, as well as those with some previous co-op education.


“NFU history is rooted in the cooperative movement, and our future is too,” said NFU President Rob Larew. “The college is a glowing example of the value Farmers Union provides to our members and their communities.”


Participants will hear from a variety of speakers from local and national co-ops.  The keynote luncheon will feature an address from Megan Rock, the Chief Sustainability Officer and Vice President of Sustainability and Innovation with CHS Inc.
