Scenes from CCMA
Several PCC board and staff members attended the 2013 Consumer Cooperative Management Association (CCMA) conference in June. They participated in workshops over the three-day conference that was attended by more than 500. The conference was held in Austin, Texas and the host co-op was Wheatsville Food Co-op.
Wheatsville is celebrating the impending opening of their second store. The PCC group was able to tour both the current and future Wheatsville locations. “Over the years, we have had discussions related to growth with board members and management from Wheatsville, so it was very exciting to see this new store taking shape,” noted trustee Carol Binder.
The PCC group had informal meetings with several co-ops including Hanover Consumer Cooperative Society in New Hampshire. PCC has a special connection with Hanover since Hanover’s general manager Terry Appleby once served as PCC’s general manager.
CCMA is annually a great opportunity to share ideas and experiences with co-ops of all sizes.
