The local committee is looking for volunteers. You can assist at the registration desk, the local social, the co-op tour and more.

For every four hours of volunteering, you can attend one workshop free of charge. Please contact Diana Idibe by email at if you are interested and able to help. We would love to have you on the team!

Young member discounts

All co-op members or staff 35 years of age or under are eligible for 30% off any full registration type.

Discounts for smaller co-ops

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

Registration: We know that small co-ops have to spread the registration fee over fewer units. To make attendance more affordable, 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 $975 for their delegate’s 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 $975 and the cost of a refundable ticket or actual cost (whichever is less).
  • Co-ops with more than 50 units that pay more than $975 will get half of the difference between $975 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 onsite and email to
