In response to our sector’s need for an education & networking retreat, and building on the success of the Co-opalooza festival, we’re excited to announce that we are bringing back our day-long conference in 2022


Tailored for your co-op & credit union’s champions, brand ambassadors and community builders, the two days will focus on:

  • igniting passion and exploring creative techniques for staff & member engagement

  • sharing innovative strategies in marketing & communications for your co-op/credit union.


Taking place at our 98-acre site, the event will feature interactive workshops, inspiring, high-profile speakers, valuable networking opportunities, and will take advantage of the beautiful Carolinian forest with nature hikes, bonfires and a live music social.


Spaces are limited for overnight shared cabin accommodations, so be sure to book early!
