October is National Co-op Month
The Kansas Cooperative Council will once again be participating in Co-op Month. The theme for the 2022 National Cooperative Month in October is "Co-ops Build Economic Power". The Council will be engaging in several activities throughout the month to thank our members and help raise the profile of cooperatives in Kansas. We hope that you and your cooperative will do the same!
Co-op Month Photo Contest
Get your cameras ready! We want to see you or your Co-op in action during Co-op Month. Like our Facebook page and message us your submissions by October 25th. Voting will take place on Facebook. Winners will receive a gift basket of KCC gear, fuel card, Yeti tumbler, and food items from the Land of Kansas. Winners will be announced at the end of October!
Co-op Month Lunches
Who doesn't love a free meal. We have randomly drawn a Co-op from each of our districts to receive a catered lunch for all employees and board members. Congratulations to each of our winners!
- Farmers Union Mercantile & Shipping Association, Stockton
- Agri Trails Co-op, Hope
- Sublette Cooperative, Inc., Sublette
- Farmers Co-op Elevator Company, Garden Plain
We hope you are also thinking of ways to promote your cooperative during Co-op Month. Some ways to involve your community in this celebration are: schedule a visit to your local school; serve a customer appreciation lunch; organize a charity walk-a-thon; distribute Co-op theme items to your members. We would enjoy hearing about what your cooperative has planned in your community!
