Who we are

NCBA CLUSA is the primary voice in the United States for people who use cooperatives to build a better world through an inclusive economy.

What we do

  • NCBA CLUSA works to build a better world and a more inclusive economy that empowers people to contribute to shared prosperity and well-being for themselves and future generations. By leveraging the shared resources of the cooperative movement, we seek to engage, partner with, and empower people from all walks of life—particularly those left behind by a shifting economy and facing the greatest economic and societal barriers. We achieve this vision through collaborative partnerships in development, advocacy, public awareness and thought leadership.
  • Through its international development program, NCBA CLUSA builds resilient communities, promotes economic opportunities, and strengthens cooperatives and producer organizations around the world.
  • Through its advocacy program, NCBA CLUSA educates lawmakers and promotes the cooperative business model, working with public and private thought leaders.
