Capacity building organizations are invited to join us virtually this Friday to discuss their work, get to know each other or reconnect, and stay up to date on each others’ efforts. We host every first Friday of each month to provide an ongoing opportunity to connect. 

5/13 12p-1p Cooperative Network Meeting

This meeting is primarily for members of the Cooperative Network but is open to the public.
