Discounts for smaller co-ops

If your co-op has 50 units or less, there are ways we can help make your Annual Meeting more affordable.

Registration: We know that small co-ops have to spread the registration fee over fewer units. To help out, we’re giving a 30% discount on the delegate registration category only for small co-ops (1-50 units).

Travel pool

Co-ops that pay more than $950 for their delegates’ refundable airfare (round trip, after taxes) to the Annual Meeting can get money back from the pool.

  • Delegates from co-ops with 25 units or less will not pay more than $500.
  • Co-ops with 26 to 50 units are refunded the difference between $950 and the cost of a refundable ticket or actual cost (whichever is less).
  • Co-ops with more than 50 units that pay more than $950 will get half of the difference between $950 and the cost of an economy ticket.

To apply to the travel pool, please complete the application form found in your National Business Meeting book on-site and email to
