Mica to speak on cooperative advocacy
WASHINGTON (3/24/08)—Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Dan Mica will lead a session on public policy and advocacy for cooperative concerns at the Annual Cooperative Conference here May 1. The conference, conducted by the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA), will feature speakers on topics such as co-op governance, global accounting standards, public policy and implementing innovative marketing strategies. The Cooperative Conference also is intended to provide an opportunity for cooperative personnel to network with representatives from the full spectrum of cooperatives in the United States. “The annual conference is a keystone event for NCBA and for our members,” said Paul Hazen, NCBA president and CEO. “Our members from all over the country come to D.C. to engage with cooperative-minded leaders, educate themselves and others on the critical issues pertaining to cooperatives, and also build relationships that foster a greater awareness of the value of cooperative business.” In addition to Mica’s session on advocacy for cooperatives, the conference will feature sessions on cooperative governance, global accounting standards, collaboration efforts, and how to build visibility and credibility, among other topics.
