NCBA CLUSA’s 2016 Consumer Cooperative Management Association (CCMA) Conference will be held June 9 – 11, 2016 in Amherst, Massachusetts at the University of Massachusetts.  The conference is co-hosted by members of the Neighboring Food Co-op Association, with Franklin Community Co-op and River Valley Co-op as primary local hosts.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Disrupting the Future: Cooperative Food and the Next Generation”, with significant focus on how to challenge leadership in this sector to address diversity and inclusion through their cooperative businesses.

This conference will address the need for a radical shift in thinking for food cooperatives to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive natural foods marketplace. Food co-ops in particular continue to battle perceptions of elitism and the expectation of higher prices. Session topics will address how the sector can challenge those expectations by working to impact communities outside the traditional food co-op demographic and demonstrating diversity and inclusion through recruiting and hiring practices.
