Calling Young Farmers: Conference on Co-operatives
Every February students attend the Collegiate Conference on Co-operatives. Sponsored in part by the CHS Foundation and CoBank, the event attracts participants from across the country to the hotbed of co-operation, Minneapolis/St. Paul. The annual conference features presentations by cooperative leaders from all across the spectrum, and it is beneficial to both beginning students and to those with some previous co-op education. This year it takes place on February 13-16.

“Our own history is so closely tied with the cooperative movement,” said National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson. “Farmers Union has a strong commitment to providing co-operative education not only to our members, but also to the general public, and especially to young people.”

New England Farmers Union will send four members to Minneapolis for this year’s conference (expenses paid). If you, your child, or someone you know is a college student or is under 25 and interested in co-operatives in agriculture, please let us know.
