Principle Six of the International Cooperative Principles is cooperation among cooperatives.  PACA serves as a conduit for our region's co-ops to practice the principle.  So what does it look like?  How can we improve upon it?  What are the challenges and opportunities to promoting and practicing cooperation among cooperatives in different sectors?  

Join PACA for a panel discussion with cooperator to explore how our region is practicing Principle Six and how we can do it better.  Panelists are: 

  • Tyneisha Bowens (Mariposa Food Co-op)
  • Will Crosswell (Ardent Credit Union, PACA board member) 
  • Brad Forbes (Life Center Association, PACA board member) 
  • Morgan Pitts (The Energy Co-op)
  • Sheila Quintana (Bonfire Media Collective)
