Mission Statement

The Mission of the Coordinating Council of Cooperatives

To serve as a clearinghouse where local co-ops can exchange information and experiences in governance and operations.

To be a sounding board for new ideas and a forum for discovery, discussion and dissemination.

To be a springboard and, as necessary, a vehicle for initiating and implementing plans and programs for joint economic, social and political action.

“What does the Coordinating Council of Cooperatives mean to me? It means shared friends, shared experiences, shared ideas, improved management, improved leadership, improved governance. Above all, it nurtures and sustains a true cooperative spirit among all involved.”

Mary A. Thompson (Morningside Heights Housing)
