In keeping with our long term goal of promoting the cooperative structure, we have some exciting news to report from Congress.
Here is a letter authored by National Cooperative Business Association to endorse the HR3677 Cooperative Development Bill currently sitting in Congress. You can read the HR3677, which we highly recommend you do, and some background here: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-3677
Also, after you read it, head here and offer your support of the bill to your congressperson: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/112/hr3677 You can view comments from some cooperativists you may know there, too!
The United Nations has declared 2012 the International Year of the Cooperative!
