NCBA video urges public to use co-ops
WASHINGTON (10/14/11)--The National Cooperative Business Association has developed a “Choose A Co-op” YouTube video, urging consumers to make a difference in their local communities. The video was introduced at the NCBA’s Annual Meeting and Co-op Conference Oct. 4-7 in Minneapolis. The video informs consumers that co-ops offer an alternative to large corporations, including big banks, such as those responsible for the current economic situation. Most money spent at co-ops remains in the local economy, keeping businesses and communities thriving, NCBA said. October is National Co-op Month, with the theme “Building a Better World.” Credit unions will celebrate their cooperative philosophy Thursday on International Credit Union Day The United Nations and the cooperative business sector also will launch 2012 International Year of Cooperatives on Oct. 31.
