Empower Cooperatives Empower Communities

Our Cooperative Conference is a 2-day event for Council members to come together, learn from each other and conduct Council business, including our Annual Meeting.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in engaging discussions and share their unique perspectives in order to determine the needs of cooperatives in our state and guide CCNC in assisting our cooperatives and bettering our communities.

This event is an excellent opportunity for those in leadership roles as well as aspiring co-op leaders. We welcome all co-op Board Members, volunteers and staff to attend. Bring spouses to attend and enjoy the great location too!

Each CCNC member cooperative is given two complimentary registrations each year.



Get ready to enjoy the Grandover Resort & Spa! To reserve your room, use the link below or call the Resort at (336) 294-1800.

Conference dates are
