CONCORD, N.H. – ROC USA® National Acquisitions and Project Manager Angela Romeo will present the benefits of the resident-owned cooperative model on the We Own It Power Up Panel, taking place online on Monday, October 5 from 7-8:30 p.m. Eastern.
We Own It was founded in 2015 to serve an unfilled need for a national association that represents cooperative member-owners, rather than a trade association of cooperative businesses. We Own It aims to bring the 130 million members of co-ops into the movement to build a cooperative economy, and to help both member-owners and their co-ops navigate the necessary transition in how they engage with each other.
The Power Up Panel is a 90-minute conversation showcasing success stories of cooperatives contributing to a people-centered economy through democratic decision organizing.
Romeo will discuss how ROC USA identified a need for cooperatively-run manufactured home communities, also known as resident owned communities, and the benefits members of ROCs realize.
She will be joined on the panel by Felipe Witchger of Consumer Purchasing Alliance and Adria Powell of Cooperative Homecare Associates.
There is no cost to register for the panel. A Zoom link will be sent to the email provided on the registration form.
