Celebrating National Co-Op Month Where it All Began
Friday, October 24, 2014 6:35 AM

A cooperative involves mutual assistance in working toward a common goal. Credit unions are cooperatives because every member is an owner and because their goal is helping their members. October is National Co-op Month, and financial co-ops, like credit unions, have joined the celebration. Events have been kicked off where it all began:  in Minnesota.

The first co-op month was celebrated in 1948 by Minnesota, and the state is home to the greatest number of cooperatives in the United States. In honor of National Co-Op Month, the Minnesota Credit Union Network hosted a "Community Connected" press event at Heartland Credit Union in Inver Grove Heights. The gathering included many credit union and cooperative leaders throughout the state.

Cornerstone is asking member credit unions if they're participating in National Co-op Month. If so, please email us or post your events to our Facebook or Twitter pages.
