Form a Cooperative
Interested in forming a cooperative? There are some great resources, assistance and expertise available, regardless of the type of cooperative business that you, your business or community need—consumer, purchasing, worker, producer or a hybrid form of cooperative business.
Centers for Cooperative Development
Centers for cooperative development in the United States and Canada can help you form a cooperative or provide assistance with your cooperative busines. A number of them are affiliated with public universities. Check out our list of centers here.
NCBA also provides consulting services in domestic cooperative development through its Co-opsUSA development center, which specializes in purchasing and shared service co-ops. Please visit the Co-opsUSA website, especially its Resources page, which has links to development centers, financial sources, a publications center and consultants.
