The University of Wisconsin Urban Cooperative Initiative and the National Cooperative Business Association to bring you the 58th Consumer Cooperative Managers Association (CCMA) conference. Heroically, they’ve chosen the Wisconsin state motto, Forward, for the 2014 conference theme. We are pleased to announce a plethora of workshops led by CDS Consulting Co-op members. To register for CCMA, visit the CCMA website for more information. We’re also hosting at our hospitality suite at the conference. Join us to sample local beer and have a great conversation.
