2012 Designated “International Year of Cooperatives”

Electric cooperatives and other members of the co-op family take center stage globally in 2012, designated the International Year of Cooperatives.
The celebration begins in October when U.S. cooperatives traditionally celebrate National Cooperative Month. The International Year of Cooperatives’ theme, “Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World,” resonates with co-ops in the electric, banking, food, retail, housing, and marketing arenas.
