"As a past participant in an earlier version of the Cooperative Leaders and Scholars Institute, I can personally attest to the powerful experience to which these outstanding emerging leaders can look forward to at the NCBA CLUSA Co-op IMPACT Conference in Washington, DC" said Cathy Statz, CLSI Coordinator. "In addition to meeting leaders across cooperative industries while learning about - and contributing to - creative and strategic solutions and innovations in cooperatives here and abroad, they will build a cross-sectoral cohort that will support and inspire them as they continue on their personal and professional cooperative path."

In addition to an exclusive orientation and networking events, CLSI participants  attend  a management course presented by Saint Mary's University and the 2019 Co-op IMPACT Conference and meet co-op industry and thought leaders, policymakers, and other key stakeholders.
